THE EXHAUSTION of yet another edition of this work shows that there is no falling 
off in the public demand to be informed about the Protocols of Zion. It is becoming 
clearer every day that the policy of the Protocols is now being enforced on all nations, 
since, as Mr. Israel Zangwill boasts, their governments are all packed with Jews and their 


To Professor Sergyei Nilus the world is indebted for the publication of this terrible book. 
Thus it happens that whilst Russia has been made the victim of Jewry's undying hate, 
having been selected by the Elders of Zion to be made an example of Jewish vengeance, 
Russia has also sounded the tocsin which has aroused the world. To the courage, 
persistence and devotion of this true son of real Russia the world owes it that the Hidden 
Hand is now laid bare to its skin and claws. The chaos prevailing everywhere here finds 
its object and cause explained. 


Let every reader of the Protocols study well the Introduction and the Epilogue , which are 
contributed by Nilus himself, and especially the Epilogue in connection with Protocol III , 
revealing the track of the Symbolic Serpent in its strangling coil round Europe. The 
poignency of the writer's grief over the then impending fate of his beloved country, which 
he tried in vain to avert, cannot fail to cut every sympathetic reader to the heart. 


And it must be borne in mind that Nilus first published the Protocols in 1902; that the 
edition from which our translation was made was published in 1905, and that the actual 
copy which was used in the translation is now in the British Museum, having stamped on 
it the date of its reception, 10th August, 1906. There is no getting over these dates, which 
prove that the World War, the crucifixion of Russia, strikes, revolutions and 
assassinations, have all taken place "according to plan." And that plan was not the plan of 
Germany, nor the plan of England, nor the plan of any other nation except the Nation of 
Jewry, with its secret language and secret government — The Hidden Hand — now, at 
length, completely revealed in the Protocols, which, it need hardly be said, were never 
intended for Gentile eyes to see. 


Of course, Jews say the Protocols are a forgery. But the Great War was no forgery; the 
fate of Russia is no forgery; and these were predicted by the Learned Elders as long ago 
as 1901. The Great War was no German war — it was a Jew war. It was plotted by Jews, 
and was waged by Jewry on the Stock Exchanges of world. The generals and the admirals 
were all controlled by Jewry. The revelations of the Jutland Battle and its sequel give one 
small example of how the Jews conducted the war, whether by land or sea; how they 
secured the "profits" of the war for Jews, and how they obtained controlling power for 
Jewry over all the belligerents. 


Reader! The publication of this work throws a great responsibility on You. 


August, 1921 



A MANUSCRIPT has been handed to me by a personal friend, now deceased, which 
with extraordinary precision and clearness describes the plan and development of a 
sinister world-wide conspiracy, having for its object that of bringing the unregenerate 
World to its inevitable dismemberment. 


This document came into my possession some four years ago (1901), with the positive 
assurance that it is a true copy in translation, of original documents stolen by a woman 
from one of the most influential and most highly initiated leaders of Freemasonry (Orient 
Freemasonry). The theft was accomplished at the close of a secret meeting of the 
"initiated" in France, that nest of "Jewish masonic conspiracy." 


To those who would see and hear, I venture to reveal this manuscript under the title of 
"The Protocols of the Elders of Zion." On first scanning through these minutes, they 
might convey the impression of being what we usually call truisms, and appear to be 
more or less ordinary truths, though expressed with a pungency and a hatred which does 

not usually accompany ordinary truths. There seethes between the lines that arrogant and 
deep-rooted racial and religious hatred, which has been so long successfully concealed, 
and it bubbles over and flows, as it were, from an overfilled vessel of rage and revenge, 
fully conscious that its triumphant end is near. 


We cannot omit to remark that its title does not altogether correspond to its contents. 
These are not exactly minutes of meetings, but a report made by some powerful person, 
divided into sections not always in a logical sequence. They convey the impression of 
being the part of something threatening and more important, the beginning of which is 
missing. The aforementioned origin of this document speaks for itself. 

By the prophecies of the Holy Fathers, Anti-Christ's doings must always be a parody on 
Christ's life, and must have likewise their Judas. But, of course, from an earthly point of 
view, its Judas will not achieve his ends; thus, although of brief duration, a complete 
victory of the "world ruler" is assured. This reference to W. Soloviev's words is not 
intended to be used as a proof of their scientific authority. From an eschatological point 
of view, science is out of place, the important part is fate. Soloviev gives us the canvas, 
the embroidery will be worked by the proposed manuscript. 


We might be justly reproached with the apocryphal nature of this document; but were it 
possible to prove this world-wide conspiracy by means of letters or by declarations of 
witnesses, and if its leaders could be unmasked holding its sanguinary threads, the 
"mysteries of iniquity," would by this very fact, be violated. To prove itself, it has to 
remain unmolested till the day of its incarnation in the "son of perdition." 


In the present complications of criminal proceedings we cannot look for direct proofs, but 
we have to be satisfied with circumstantial evidence, and with such the mind of every 
indignant Christian observer is filled. 


That which is written in this work ought to suffice for those "who have ears to hear" as 
being obvious and is offered them with the intention of urging them to protect themselves 
while there is yet time, and to be on their guard. Our conscience will be satisfied if by the 
grace of God we attain this most important aim of warning the Gentile world without 
exciting in its heart wrath against the blinded people of Israel. We trust that the Gentiles 
will not entertain feelings of hatred against the erroneously believing mass of Israel in its 
innocence of the Satanic sin of its leaders — the Scribes and Pharisees — who have already 
once proved themselves to be the destruction of Israel. Turning aside the wrath of God, 
there remains but one way — union of all Christians in Our Lord Jesus Christ and total 
extermination — repentance for ourselves and for others. 

But is this possible in the present unregenerate condition of the world? It is impossible 
for the world, but still possible for believing Russia. The present political conditions of 
Western European states and of their affiliated countries in other continents were 
prophesied by the Prince of Apostles. Mankind in its aspiration to perfect its terrestrial 
life and in its search of a better realisation of the idea of power, which could secure 
everybody's well-being, and in its quest of a reign of universal satiety, which has become 
the highest ideal of human life, has changed the direction of its ideals by pronouncing the 
Christian faith as entirely discredited and not having justified the hopes bestowed on it. 
Overthrowing former idols, creating new ones, and raising new gods on to pedestals, the 
world erects for them temples, one more luxurious and more magnificent than the other, 
and again deposes and destroys them. Mankind has lost the very conception of the power 
granted by God to kings anointed, and is approaching the conditions of anarchy. Soon the 
swivel of the republican and constitutional scales will be worn through. The scales will 
collapse, and in their fall will carry away all the governments to the very abyss of raging 


The world's last rampart and last refuge from coming storm is Russia. Her true faith is 
still alive, the anointed Emperor still stands as her sure protector. 


All the efforts of destruction on the part of the sinister and evident servants of the Anti- 
Christ, his conscious and unconscious workers, are concentrated on Russia. The reasons 
are understood, the objects are known, they must be known to believing and faithful 
Russia. The more threatening the coming historical moment is, the more frightening the 
approaching events concealed in the dense clouds are, the more courageously and with 
greater determination the brave and intrepid hearts of the Russians must beat. Bravely 
ought they to join hands round the sacred banner of their Church and round the throne 
their Emperor. So long as the soul lives, so long also the flaming heart beats in the 
bosom, there is no room for the deathly spectre of despair; but it is for us, and for our 
fidelity, to gain the Almighty's mercy and to delay the hour of Russia's fall. 

Sergyei Nilus 



WE WILL BE PLAINSPOKEN and discuss the significance of each reflection, and by 
comparisons and deductions we will produce full explanations. By this means I will 
expose the conception of our policy and that of the Goys (i.e., Jewish definition of all 
Gentiles). It must be noted that people with corrupt instincts are more numerous than 
those of noble instinct. Therefore in governing the world the best results are obtained by 
means of violence and intimidation, and not by academic discussions. Every man aims at 

power; everyone would like to become a dictator if he only could do so, and rare indeed 
are the men who would not be disposed to sacrifice the welfare of others in order to attain 
their own personal aims. 


What restrained the wild beasts of prey which we call men? What has ruled them up to 
now? In the first stages of social life they submitted to brute and blind force, then to law, 
which in reality is the same force, only masked. From this I am led to deduct that by the 
law of nature, right lies in might. Political freedom is not a fact, but an idea. This idea one 
must know how to apply when it is necessary, in order to use the same as a bait to attract 
the power of the populace to one's party, if such party has decided to usurp the power of a 
rival. The problem is simplified if the said rival becomes infected with ideas of freedom, 
so-called liberalism, and for the sake of this idea yields some of his power. 


In this the triumph of our idea will become apparent. The relinquished reins of 
government by the law of life are immediately seized by a new hand, because the blind 
strength of the populace cannot exist for a single day without a leader, and the new 
government only fills the place of the old, which has been weakened by its liberalism. 


Nowadays the power of gold has superseded liberal rulers. There was a time when 
religion ruled. The idea of freedom is not realisable, because no one knows how to use it 
with discretion. 


It suffices to give the populace self-government for a short period for this populace to 
become a disorganised rabble. From that very moment dissensions start which soon 

develop into social battles; the States are set in flames and their total significance 
vanishes. Whether the state is exhausted by its own internal convulsions, or whether civil 
wars hand it over to an external foe, it can in any case be considered definitely and finally 
destroyed — it will be in our power. The despotism of capital, which is entirely in our 
hands, will hold out to it a straw, to which the state will be unavoidably compelled to 
cling; if it does not do so, it will inevitably fall into the abyss. 


Of anybody who might, from motives of liberalism, be inclined to remark that 
discussions of this kind are immoral, I would ask the question, why is it not immoral for a 
state which has two enemies, one external and one internal, to use different means of 
defence against the former to that which it would use against the latter, to make secret 
plans of defence, to attack him by night or with superior forces? Why should it then be 
immoral for the state to use these means against that which ruins the foundations and 
welfare of its life? 


Can a sound and logical mind hope successfully to govern mobs by using arguments and 
reasoning, when there is a possilility of such arguments and reasonings being 
contradicted by other arguments, although these may possibly be ridiculous, but are made 
to appear more attractive to that portion of the populace which cannot think very deeply, 
guided as it is entirely by petty passions, habits, and conventions, and by sentimental 
theories? The uninitiated and ignorant populace, together with those who have risen from 
among them, get entangled in party dissensions which hinder all possibility of agreement 
even on a basis of sound arguments. Every decision of the masses is dependent on a 
chance or prearranged majority which, in its ignorance of political mysteries, passes 
absurd resolutions, thus sowing the germs of anarchy in the government. 


Politics have nothing in common with morals. A ruler governed by morals is not a skilled 
politician, hence he is not firm on his throne. He who wants to rule must have recourse to 
cunningness and hypocrisy. The great human qualities of sincerity and honesty become 

vices in politics. They dethrone with more certainty than the bitterest enemy. These 
qualities have to be the attributes of the Gentile countries, but we are not in the least 
forced to be guided by them. Our right lies in might. The word "right" is an abstract idea 
established by nothing. This word signifies no more than "give me what I want in order to 
enable me to prove thereby that I am stronger than you are." 


Where does "right" begin? Where does it end? In a state where power is badly organised, 
where the laws and the personality of the ruler are rendered inefficacious by the continual 
encroaching of liberalism, I take up a new line of attack, making use of the right of might 
to destroy the existing rules and regulations, seize the laws, reorganise all the institutions, 
and thus become the dictator of those who, of their own free will, liberally renounced 
their power and conferred it on us. Our strength under the present shaky condition of the 
civil powers will be stronger than any other, because it will be invisible till the moment 
when it becomes so strong that no cunning designs will undermine it. 


From the temporary evil, to which we are now obliged to have recourse, will emerge the 
benefit of an unshakeable rule, which will reinstate the course of the mechanism of 
natural existence, which has been destroyed by liberalism. The end justifies the means. In 
making our plans we must pay attention not so much to what good and moral, as to what 
is necessary and profitable. 


We have in front of us a plan in which a strategic line is shown. From that line we cannot 
deviate unless we are going to destroy the work of centuries. To work out a suitable 
scheme of action one must bear in mind the meanness, instability, and want of ballast on 
the part of the crowd, its incapability to understand and respect the conditions of its own 
existence and of its own welfare. One must understand that the might of the crowd is 
blind and void of reason in discrimination, and that it lends its ear right and left. If the 
blind lead the blind, they will both fall together into the ditch. Consequently those 
members of the crowd who are upstarts from the people, even were they geniuses, cannot 

come forward as leaders of the mass without ruining the nation. Only a person brought up 
to autocratic sovereignty can read the words formed by political letters. The people 
abandoned to itself, i.e., to upstarts from the masses, is ruined by party dissensions which 
arise from greed of power and honours and which create disturbances and disorder. 


Is it possible for the mass to discriminate quietly, and without jealousies to administer the 
affairs of state, which they must not confuse with their personal interests? Can they be a 
defence against a foreign foe? This is impossible, as a plan broken up into as many parts 
as there are minds in the mass loses its value, and therefore becomes unintelligible and 
unworkable. Alone an autocrat can conceive vast plans clearly assigning its proper part to 
everything in the mechanism of the machine of state. Hence we conclude that it is 
expedient for the welfare of the country that the government of the same should be in the 
hands of one responsible person. Without absolute despotism civilisation cannot exist, for 
civilisation is capable of being promoted only under the protection of the ruler, whoever 
he may be, and not at the hands of the masses. 


The crowd is a barbarian, and acts as such on every occasion. As soon as the mob has 
secured freedom it speedily turns it into anarchy, which in itself is the height of 


Just look at these alcoholised animals stupefied by the drink, of which unlimited use is 
tolerated by freedom! Should we allow ourselves and our fellow creatures to do likewise? 
The people of the Christians, bewildered by alcohol, their youths turned crazy by classics 
and early debauchery, to which they have been instigated by our agents, tutors, servants, 
governesses in rich houses, clerks, and so forth, by our women in places of their 
amusement to the latter I add the so-called "society women" — their voluntary followers 
in corruption and luxury. Our motto must be "All means of force and hypocrisy." 


Only sheer force is victorious in politics, especially if it is concealed in the talent 
indispensable for statesmen. Violence must the principle, cunning and hypocrisy must be 
the rule of those Governments which do not wish to lay down their crown at the feet of 
the agents of some new power. This evil is the only means of attaining the goal of good. 
Therefore, we must not stop short before bribery, deceit and treachery, if these are to 
serve achievement of our cause. 


In politics we must know how to confiscate property without any hesitation, if by so 
doing we can attain subjection and power. Our State, following the way of peaceful 
conquest, has the right of substituting for the terrors of war executions, less apparent and 
more expedient, which are necessary to uphold terror, producing blind submission. Just 
and implacable severity is the chief factor in State power. Not only for the sake of 
advantage, but also for that of duty and victory, we must keep to the programme of 
violence and hypocrisy. Our principles are as powerful as the means by which we put 
them into execution. That is why not only by these very means, but by the severity of our 
doctrines, we shall triumph and shall enslave all Governments under our super- 
Government. It suffices that it should be known that we are implacable in preventing 
recalcitrance. Even of old we were the first to cry out to the people "Libery, equality, and 
fraternity." Words so often repeated since that time by ignorant parrots flocking together 
from far and wide round these signposts; by repeating them they deprived the world of its 
prosperity and the individual of his real personal freedom, which formerly had been so 
well guarded from being choked by the mob. 


The would-be wise and intelligent Gentiles did not discern how abstract were the words 
which they were uttering, and did not notice how little these words agreed with one 
another and even contradicted each other. 


They did not see that in Nature there is no equality and that she herself created different 
and unequal standards of mind, character and capacity. It is likewise with the subjection 
to Nature's laws. These wiseacres did not divine that the mob is a blind power, and that 
the upstarts elected from its midst as rulers are likewise blind in politics; that a man 
intended to be a ruler, although a fool, can govern, but that a man who has not been so 
intended, although he might be a genius, would understand nothing of politics. All this 
was left out of sight by the Gentiles. At the same time, it was on this basis that dynastic 
rule was founded. The father used to instruct the son in the meaning and in the course of 
political evolutions in such a manner that no one except the members of the dynasty 
should have knowledge of it, and that none could disclose the secrets to the governed 
people. In time, the meaning of true political teachings as transmitted in dynasties from 
one generation to another was lost, and this loss contributed to the success of our cause. 
Our call of "Liberty, equality, and fraternity", brought whole legions to our ranks from all 
four corners of the world through our unconscious agents, and these legions carried our 
banners with ecstacy. In the meantime these words were eating, like so many worms, into 
the well being of the Christians and were destroying their peace, steadfastness and uriity, 
thus ruining the foundations of the States. As we shall see later on, it was this action 
which brought about our triumph. It gave us the possibility among other things of playing 
the ace of trumps — namely, the abolition of privileges; in other words, the existence of 
the Gentile aristocracy, which was the only protection nations and countries had against 
ourselves. On the ruins of natural and hereditary aristocracy we built an aristocracy of our 
own on a plutocratic basis. We established this new aristocracy on wealth, of which we 
had control, and on science promoted by scholars. Our triumph was rendered easier by 
the fact that we, through our connections with people who were indispensable to us, 
always worked upon the most susceptible part of the human mind, namely, by playing on 
our victims' weakness for profits, on their greed, on their insatiability, and on the material 
requirements of man; for each one of the said weaknesses, taken by itsejj, is capable of 
destroying initiative, thus handing over the will-power of the people to the mercy of those 
who would deprive them of all their power of initiative. The abstractness of the word " 
freedom " made it possible to convince the mob that the government is nothing else than 
a manager, representing the owner, that is to say, the nation, and can be discarded like a 
worn-out pair of gloves. The fact that the representatives of the nation can be deposed 
delivered these representatives into our power and practically put their appointment into 
our hands. 



It is indispensible for our purpose that wars should not produce any territorial alterations. 
Thus, without territorial modifications, war would be transferred on to an economical 
footing. Then nations will recognise our superiority in the assistance which we shall 
render, and this state of affairs will put both sides at the mercy of our international 
million-eyed agents, who are possessed of absolutely unlimited means. Then our 
international rights will sweep away the laws of the world and will rule countries in the 
same manner as individual governments rule their subjects. 


We will select administrators from among the public, who will be possessed of servile 
tendencies. They will not be experienced in the art of government and therefore will be 
easily turned into pawns in our game in the hands of our learned and wise counsellors, 
who have been especially trained from early childhood for governing the world. As is 
already known to you, these men have studied the science of governing from our political 
plans, from experience of history and from observation of passing events. The Gentiles 
do not profit by continuous historical observations, but follow theoretical routine without 
contemplating what the results of the same may be. Therefore we need not take the 
Gentiles into consideration. Let them enjoy themselves until the time comes, or let them 
live in hopes of new amusements or on the reminiscences of passed joys. Let them think 
that these laws of theory, with which we have inspired them, are of supreme importance 
to them. With this object in view, and with the help of our press, we continually increase 
their blind faith in these laws. The educated classes of the Gentiles will pride themselves 
in their learning and, without verifying it, they will put into practice the knowledge 
obtained from science which was dished up to them by our agents with the object of 
educating their minds in the direction which we required. 


Do not imagine that our assertions are empty words. Note here the success of Darwin, 
Marx and Nietsche pre-arranged by us. The demoralising effect of the tendencies of these 
sciences on the Gentile mind should certainly be obvious to us. 


In order to refrain from making mistakes in our policy and administrative work, it is 
essential for us to study and bear in mind the present line of thought, the characters and 
tendencies of nations. 


The triumph of our theory is its adaptability to the temperament of the nations with which 
we come contact. It cannot be successful if its practical application is not based on the 
experience of the past in conjunction with observations of the present. The press in the 
hands of existing governments is a great power, by which the control of peoples' minds is 
obtained. The press demonstrates the vital claims of the populace, advertises complaints 
and sometimes creates discontent among the mob. The realisation of free speech is born 
in the press. But governments did not know how to make proper use of this power, and it 
fell into our hands. Through the press we achieved influence, although we ourselves kept 
in the background. Thanks to the press we accumulated gold, though it cost us streams of 
blood: it cost us the sacrifice of many of our people, but every sacrifice on our side is 
worth thousands of Gentiles before God. 



Today I can assure you that we are only within a few strides of our goal. There remains 
only a short distance and the cycle of the Symbolic Serpent — that badge of our people — 
will be complete. When this circle is locked, all the States of Europe will be enclosed in 
it, as it were, by unbreakable chains. 


The existing constructional scales will soon collapse because we are continually throwing 
them out of balance in order the more quickly to wear them out and destroy their 


The Gentiles thought that the scales had been made sufficiently strong and expected them 
to balance accurately. But the supporters of the scales — that is to say, the heads of 
States — are hampered by their servants who are of no avail to them, drawn away as they 
are by this unlimited power of intrigue which is theirs, thanks to the terrors prevailing in 
the palaces. 


As the sovereign has no means of access to the hearts of his people, he cannot defend 
himself against the power-loving intriguers. As the watchful power has been separated by 
us from the blind power of the populace, both have lost their significance, because once 
parted they are as helpless as a blind man without a stick. In order to induce lovers of 
power to make a bad use of their rights, we set all powers one against the other by 
encouraging their liberal tendencies towards independence. We encouraged every 
undertaking in this direction; we placed formidable weapons in the hands of all parties 
and made power the goal of every ambition. Out of governments we made arenas on 
which party wars are fought out. Soon open disorder and bankruptcy will appear 
everywhere. Insuppressable babblers transformed parliamentary and administrative 
meetings into debating meetings. Audacious journalists and impudent pamphleteers are 
continually attacking the administrative powers. Abuse of power will definitely prepare 
the crash of all institutions and everything will fall prostrate under the blows of the raging 
populace. The people are enslaved in the sweat of their brows in poverty after a manner 
more formidable than the laws of serfdom. From the latter they could free themselves by 
some means or another, whereas nothing will liberate them from the tyranny of absolute 
want. We took care to insert rights in constitutions which for the masses are purely 
fictitious. All the so-called "rights of the people" can only exist in ideas which are not 
applicable in practice. How does it avail a workman of the proletariat, who is bent double 
by work and oppressed by his fate, if a chatterer gets the right to speak or a journalist the 
right to publish any kind of rubbish? What good is a constitution to the proletariat if they 

get no other advantage from it except the crumbs which we throw them from our table in 
return for their votes to elect our agents? Republican rights are an irony for the pauper, 
for the necessity of every day's labour keeps him from gaining any advantage by such 
rights and it only takes away the guarantee of continuous fixed wages, making him 
dependent on employers, strikes and comrades. Under our auspices the populace 
exterminated the aristocracy which had supported and guarded the people for its own 
benefit, which benefit is inseparable from the welfare of the populace. Nowadays, having 
destroyed the privileges of the aristocracy, the people fall under the yoke of cunning 
profiteers and upstarts. 


We intend to appear as though we were the liberators of the labouring man, come to free 
him from this oppression, when we shall suggest to him to join the ranks of our armies of 
Socialists, Anarchists and Communists. The latter we always patronise, pretending to 
help them out of fraternal principle and the general interest of humanity evoked by our 
socialistic masonry. The aristocracy, who by right shared the labour of the working 
classes, were interested in the same being well-fed, healthy and strong. We are interested 
in the opposite, i.e., in the degeneration of the Gentiles. Our strength lies in keeping the 
working man in perpetual want and impotence; because, by so doing, we retain him 
subject to our will and, in his own surroundings, he will never find either power or energy 
to stand up against us. Hunger will confer upon Capital more powerful rights over the 
labourer than ever the lawful power of the sovereign could confer upon the aristocracy. 


We govern the masses by making use of feelings of jealousy and hatred kindled by 
oppression and need. And by means of these feelings we brush aside those who impede 
us in our course. 


When the time comes for our Worldly Ruler to be crowned, we will see to it that by the 
same means — that is to say, by making use of the mob — we will destroy everything that 
may prove to be an obstacle in our way. 


The Gentiles are no longer capable of thinking without our aid in matters of science. That 
is why they do not realise the vital necessity of certain things; which we will make a 
point of keeping against the moment when our hour arrives — namely, that in schools the 
only true and the most important of all sciences must be taught, that is, the science of the 
life of man and social conditions, both of which require a division of labour and therefore 
the classification of people in castes and classes. It is imperative that every one should 
know that true equality cannot exist owing to the different nature of various kinds of 
work, and those who act in a manner detrimental to a whole caste have a different 
responsibility before the law to those who commit a crime only affecting their personal 


The true science of social conditions, to the secrets of which we do not admit the 
Gentiles, would convince the world that occupations and labour should be kept in 
specified castes so as not to cause human suffering, arising from an education which does 
not correspond with the work which individuals are called upon to do. If they were to 
study this science, the people would of their own free will submit to the ruling powers 
and to the castes of government classified by them. Under the present conditions of 
science and the line which we have allowed it follow, the populace, in its ignorance, 
blindly believes in printed words and in erroneous illusions which have been duly 
inspired by us, and it bears malice to all classes it thinks higher than itself. For it does not 
understand the importance of each caste. This hatred will become still more acute where 
economical crises are concerned, for then it will stop the markets and production. We will 
create a universal economical crisis, by all possible underhand means and with the help 
of gold, which is all in our hands. Simultaneously we will throw on to the streets huge 
crowds of workmen throughout Europe. These masses will then gladly throw themselves 
upon and shed the blood of those of whom, in their ignorance, they have been jealous 
from childhood, and whose belongings they will then be able to plunder. 


They will not harm us, because the moment of the attack will be known to us and we will 
take measures protect our interests. 


We persuaded the Gentiles that liberalism would bring them to a kingdom of reason. Our 
despotism will be of this nature, for it will be in a position to put down all rebellions and 
by just severity to exterminate every liberal idea from all institutions. 


When the populace noticed that it was being given all sorts of rights in the name of 
liberty, it imagined itself to be the master, and tried to assume power. Of course, like 
every other blind man, the mass came up against innumerable obstacles. Then, as it did 
not wish to return to the former regime, it lay its power at our feet. Remember the French 
Revolution, which we call the "Great," the secrets of its preparatory organisation are well 
known to us, being the work of our hands. From that time onwards we have led nations 
from one disappointment to another, so that they should even renounce us in favour of the 
King-Despot of the blood of Zion, whom we are preparing for the world. At present we, 
as an international force, are invulnerable, because, whilst we are attacked by one Gentile 
government, we are upheld by others. In their intense meanness the Christian peoples 
help our independence — when kneeling they crouch before power; when they are pitiless 
towards the weak; merciless in dealing with faults and lenient to crimes ; when they 
refuse to recognise the contradictions of freedom; when they are patient to the degree of 
martyrdom in bearing with the violence of an audacious despotism. 


At the hands of their present dictators, premiers and ministers, they endure abuses, for the 
smallest of which they would have murdered twenty kings. How is this state of affairs to 
be explained? Why are the masses so illogical in their conception of events? The reason 
is, that despots persuade the people through their agents, that, although they may misuse 
their power and do injury to the state, this injury is done with a high purpose, i.e., in order 
to attain prosperity for the populace, for the sake of international fraternity, unity and 


Certainly they do not tell them that such unification can only be obtained under our rule. 
So we see the populace condemning the innocent, and acquitting the guilty, convinced 
that it can always do what it pleases. Owing to this state of mind the mob destroys all 
solidity and creates disorder at every turn and corner. The word "liberty" brings society 
into conflict with all the powers, even with that of Nature and of God. That is why, when 
we come into power, we must strike the word "liberty" out of the human dictionary, as 
being the symbol of beastial power, which turns the populace into blood-thirsty animals. 
But we must bear in mind that these animals fall asleep as soon as they are satiated with 
blood, and at that moment it is easy to enchant and enslave them. If they are not given 
blood, they will not sleep, but will fight with one another. 



Every republic passes through various stages. The first stage is the first days raging of the 
blind, sweeping and destroying right and left. The second, the reign of the demagogue, 
bringing forth anarchy and entailing despotism. This despotism is not officially legal, 
and, therefore, irresponsible; it is concealed and invisible, but, all the same, lets itself be 
felt. It is generally controlled by some secret organisation, which acts behind the back of 
some agent, and will, therefore, be the more unscrupulous and daring. This secret power 
will not mind changing its agents who mask it. The changes will even help the 
organisation, which will thus be able to rid itself of old servants, to whom it would have 
been necessary to pay larger bonuses for long service. Who or what can dethrone an 
invisible power? Now this is just what our government is. The masonic lodge throughout 
the world unconsciously acts as a mask for our purpose. But the use that we are going to 
make of this power in our plan of action, and even our headquarters, remain perpetually 
unknown to the world at large. 


Liberty could be harmless and exist in governments and countries without being 
detrimental to the welfare of the people, if it were based on religion and fear of God, on 
human fraternity, free from ideas of equality, which are in direct contradiction to the laws 
of creation, and which have ordained submission. 


Governed by such a faith as this, the people would be ruled under the guardianship of 
their parishes, and would exist quietly and humbly under the guidance of the spiritual 
pastor, and submit to God's disposition on earth. That is why we must extract the very 
conception of God from the minds of the Christians and replace it by arithmetical 
calculations and material needs. In order to divert the minds of the Christians from our 
policy, it is essential that we should keep them occupied with trade and commerce. Thus 
all nations will be striving for their own profits, and in this universal struggle will not 
notice their common enemy. But, so that liberty should entirely dislocate and ruin the 
social life of the Gentiles, we must put commerce on a speculative basis. The result of 
this will be, that the riches of the land extracted by production will not remain in the 
hands of the Gentiles, but will pass through speculation into our coffers. 


The struggle for superiority and continuous speculations in the business world will create 
a demoralised, selfish and heartless society. This society will become completely 
indifferent and even disgusted by religion and politics. Lust of gold will be their only 
guide. And this society will strive after this gold, making a veritable cult of the 
materialistic pleasures with which it can keep them supplied. Then the lower classes will 
join us against our competitors — the privileged Gentiles — with no pretence a noble 
motive, or even for the sake of riches, but out pure hatred towards the upper classes. 



What kind of government can one give to societies in which bribery and corruption have 
penetrated everywhere, where riches can only be obtained by cunning surprises and 
fraudulent means, in which dissensions continuously prevail; where morality must be 
supported by punishment and strict laws, and not by, voluntary accepted principles, in 
which patriotic and religious feelings are merged in cosmopolitan convictions? 


What form of government can be given to these societies other than the despotic form, 
which I describe to you? 


We will organise a strong centralised government, so as to gain social powers for 
ourselves. By new laws we will regulate the political life of our subjects, as though they 
were so many parts of a machine. Such laws will gradually restrict all freedom and 
liberties allowed by the Gentiles. Thus our reign will develop into such a mighty 
despotism, that it will be able at any time or place to squash discontented or recalcitrant 


We shall be told that the kind of despotism which I suggest will not suit the actual 
progress of civilisation, but I will prove to you that the contrary is the case. In the days 

when the people looked on their sovereigns as on the will of God, they quietly submitted 
to the despotism of their monarchs. But from the day that we inspired the populace with 
the idea of its own rights, they began to regard kings as ordinary mortals. In the eye of the 
mob the holy anointment fell from the head of monarchs, and, when we took away their 
religion, the power was thrown into the streets like public property, and was snatched up 
by us. Moreover, among our administrative gifts, we count also that of ruling the masses 
and individuals by means of cunningly constructed theories and phraseology, by rules of 
life and every other kind of device. All these theories, which the Gentiles do not at all 
understand, are based on analysis and observation, combined with so skilful a reasoning 
as cannot be equalled by our rivals, any more than these can compete with us in the 
construction of plans for political actions and solidarity. The only society known to us 
which would be capable of competing with us in these arts, might be that of the Jesuits. 
But we have managed to discredit these in the eyes of the stupid mob as being a palpable 
organisation, whereas we ourselves have kept in the background, reserving our 
organisation as a secret. 


Moreover, what difference will it make to the world who is to become its master, whether 
the head of the Catholic Church, or a despot of the blood of Zion? 


But to us, "the Chosen People," the matter cannot be indifferent. For a time the Gentiles 
might perhaps be able to deal with us. But oh this account we need fear no danger, as we 
are safeguarded by the deep roots of their hatred for one another, which cannot be 


We set at variance with one another all personal and national interests of the Gentiles, by 
promulgating religious and tribal prejudices among them, for nearly twenty centuries. To 
all this, the fact is due that not one single government will find support from its 
neighbours when it calls upon them for it, in opposing us, because each one of them will 
think that action against us might be disastrous for its individual existence. We are too 

powerful — the world has to reckon with us. Governments cannot make even a small 
treaty without our being secretly involved in it. Per me reges regunt — let kings reign 
through me. We read in the Law of Prophets that we have been chosen by God to rule the 
earth. God gave us genius, in order that we should be capable of performing this work. 
Were there a genius in the enemy's camp he might yet fight us, but a newcomer would be 
no match for old hands like ourselves, and the struggle between us would be of such a 
desperate nature as the world has never yet seen. It is already too for their genius. All the 
wheels of state-mechanism are set in motion by a power, which is in our hands, that to 
say — gold. 


The science of political economy, thought out by our learned scientists, has already 
proved that the power of capital is greater than the prestige of the Crown. 


Capital, in order to have a free field, must obtain absolute monopoly of trade and 
commerce. This is already being achieved by an invisible hand in all parts of world. Such 
a freedom will give political power to traders, who, by profiteering, will oppress the 


Nowadays it is more important to disarm the people than to lead them to war. It is more 
important to use burning passions for our cause, than to extinguish them; to encourage 
the ideas of others and use them for our own purpose, than to dissipate them. The main 
problem for our government is: how to weaken the brain of the public by criticism, how 
to make it lose its power of reasoning, which creates opposition, and how to distract the 
public mind by senseless phraseology. 


At all times nations, as well as individuals, have taken words for deeds, as they are 
contented with what they hear, and seldom notice whether the promise has been actually 
fulfilled. Therefore, simply for the purpose of show, we will organise institutions, 
members of which, by eloquent speeches, will prove and praise their contributions to 


We will assume a liberal appearance for all parties and for all tendencies, and will 
provide all our orators with one. These orators will be so loquacious, that they will weary 
the people with speeches to such a degree, that the people will have more than enough of 
oratory of any kind. 


In order to secure public opinion, this must first be made utterly confused by the 
expression from all sides of all manner of contradictory opinions, until the Gentiles 
become lost in their labyrinth. Then they will understand that the best course to take is to 
have no opinion on political matters — matters which are not intended to be understood by 
the public, but which should only be reserved to the directors of affairs. This is the first 


The second secret, necessary for our successful governing, consists in multiplying to such 
an extent the faults, habits, passions, and conventional laws of the country, that nobody 
will be able to think clearly in the chaos — therefore men will cease to understand one 


This policy will also help us to sow dissensions amongst all parties, to dissolve all 
collective powers, and to discourage all individual initiative, which might in any way 
hinder our schemes. 


There is nothing more dangerous than personal initiative: if there are brains at the back of 
it, it may do more harm to us than the millions of people whom we have set at one 
another's throats. 


We must direct the education of Christian societies in such a way, that in all cases where 
initiative is required for an enterprise, their hands should drop in hopeless despair. 
Tension, brought about by freedom of action, loses force when it encounters the freedom 
of others. Hence come — moral shocks, disappointments and failures. By all these means 
we will so oppress the Christians that they will be forced to ask us to govern them 
internationally. When we attain such a position we shall be able, straightway, to absorb 
all powers of governing throughout the whole world, and to form a universal Super- 
government. In the place of existing governments we will place a monster, which will be 
called the Administration of the Supergovernment. Its hands will be outstretched like far- 
reaching pinchers, and it will have such an organisation at its disposal, that it will not 
possibly be able to fail in subduing all countries. 



Soon we will start organising great monopolies — reservoirs of colossal wealth, in which 
even the large fortunes of the Gentiles will be involved to such an extent that they will 
sink together with the credit of their government the day after political crisis takes place. 
(It being evidently intended that the Jews should withdraw their money at the last 


Those among you who are present here today, and are economists, just calculate the 
importance of this scheme! 


We must use every possible kind of means to develop the popularity of our 
Supergovernment, holding it up as a protection and recompenser of all who willingly 
submit to us. 


The aristocracy of the Gentiles, as a political power, is no more, — therefore we need not 
consider it any more from that point of view. But as landowners they are still dangerous 
to us, because their independent existence is ensured through their resources. Therefore it 
is essential for us, at all costs, to deprive the aristocracy of their lands. To attain this 
purpose the best method is to force up rates and taxes. These methods will keep the 
landed interests at their lowest possible ebb. The aristocrats of the Gentiles, who, by the 
tastes which they have inherited, are incapable of being contented with a little, will soon 
be ruined. 


At the same time we must give all possible protection to trade and commerce, and 
especially to speculation, the principal role of which is to act as a counterpoise to 


Without speculation industry will enlarge private capitals and will tend to raise 
agriculture by freeing the land from debt and morgages, advanced by agricultural banks. 
It is essential that industry should drain the land of all its riches, and speculation should 
deliver all the world's wealth thus procured into our hands. By this means all the Gentiles 
would be thrown into the ranks of the proletariat. Then the Gentiles will bow down 
before us, in order to obtain the right to exist. 


In order to ruin the industry of the Gentiles and to help speculation, we will encourage 
the love for boundless luxury, which we have already developed. We will increase the 
wages, which will not help the workmen, as at the same time we will raise the price of 
prime necessities, taking as a pretext the bad results of agriculture. We will also artfully 
undermine the basis of production by sowing seeds of anarchy amongst the workmen, 
and encouraging them in the drinking of spirits. At the same time we will use all possible 
means to drive all the Gentile intelligence from the land. In order that the true position of 
affairs should not be prematurely realised by the Gentiles, we will conceal it by an 
apparent desire to help the working classes in solving great economical problems, the 
propaganda of which our economical theories are assisting in every possible way. 



Intensified military service and the increase of police force are essential to complete the 
above plans. It is essential for us to arrange that, besides ourselves, there should be in all 
countries nothing but a huge proletariat, so many soldiers and police loyal our cause. 


In the whole of Europe, and with the help of Europe, we must promote on other 
continents sedition, dissensions and mutual hostility. In this there is a twofold advantage: 
firstly by these means we command the respect of all countries, who well know that we 
have the power to create upheavals at will, or else to restore order. All countries are used 
to look to us for the necessary pressure, when such is required. Secondly, by intrigues we 
shall entangle all the threads spun by us in the ministries of all governments not only by 
our politics, but by trade conventions and financial obligations. 


In order to obtain these ends we must have recourse to much slyness and artfulness 
during negotiations and agreements, but in what is called "official language" we shall 
assume the opposite tactics of appearing honest and amenable. Thus the governments of 
the Gentiles, which we taught to look only on the showy side of affairs, as we present 
these to them, will even look upon us as benefactors and saviours of humanity. 


We must be in a position to meet every opposition with a declaration of war on the part of 
the neighbouring country of that state which dares to stand in our way; but if such 
neighbours in their turn were to decide to unite in opposing us, we must respond by 
creating a universal war. 


The main success in politics consists in the degree of secrecy employed in pursuing it. 
The action of a diplomat must not correspond with his wdrds. To help our world-wide 
plan, which is nearing its desired end, we must influence the governments of the Gentiles 
by so-called public opinions, in reality prearranged by us by means of that greatest of all 
powers — the press, which, with a few insignificant exceptions not worth taking into 
account, is entirely in our hands. 


Briefly, in order to demonstrate our enslavement of the Gentile governments in Europe, 
we will show our power to one of them by means of crimes of violence, that is to say by a 
reign of terror (note the present state of Russia, circa 1921); and in case they all rise 
against us we will respond with American, Chinese or Japanese guns. 



We must secure all instruments which our enemies might turn against us. We shall have 
recourse to the most intricate and complicated expressions of the dictionary of law in 
order to acquit ourselves in case we are forced to give decisions, which may seem 
overbold and unjust. For it will be important to express such decisions in so forcible a 
manner, that they should seem to the populace to be of the highest moral, equitable and 
just nature. Our government must be surrounded by all the powers of civilisation among 
which it will have to act. It will draw to itself publicists, lawyers, practitioners, 
administrators, diplomats, and finally people prepared in our special advanced schools. 
These people will know the secrets of social life; they will master all languages put 
together by political letters and words; they will be well acquainted with the inner side of 
human nature, with all its more sensitive strings, on which they will have to play. These 
strings form the construction of the Gentile brain, their good and bad qualities, their 
tendencies and vices, the peculiarity of castes and classes. Of course these wise 

counsellors of our might to whom I allude will not be selected from amongst the Gentiles, 
who are used to carry on their administrative work without bearing in mind the results 
which they have to achieve, and without knowing for what purpose these results are 
required. The administrators of the Gentiles sign papers without reading them, and serve 
for love of money or ambition. 


We will surround our government by a whole host of economists. That is the reason why 
science of economy is the principal subject taught to the Jews. We be surrounded by 
thousands of bankers, traders, and, what is still more important, by millionaires, because 
in reality everything will be decided by money. Meanwhile, as long as it is not yet safe to 
fill government posts with our brother Jews, we will entrust these important posts to 
people whose record and characters are so bad as to form a gulf between the nation and 
themselves, and to such people who, in case they disobey our orders, may expect 
judgment and imprisonment. And all this is with the object that they should defend our 
interests until the last breath has passed out of their bodies. 



Applying our principles, pay special attention to the character of the particular nation, by 
which you are surrounded and amongst which you have to work. You must not expect to 
be successful in applying our principles all round until the nation in question has been re- 
educated by our doctrines; but by proceeding carefully in the application of our principles 
you will discover that, before ten years have elapsed, the most stubborn character will 
have changed and we shall have added yet another nation to the ranks of those who have 
already submitted to us. 


For the liberal words of our masonic motto, "freedom, equality, and fraternity," we will 
substitute not the words of motto, but words expressing simply an idea, and we will say 
"the right of freedom, the duty of equality, and the idea of fraternity," and we shall have 
the bull by the horns. As a matter of fact we have already destroyed all ruling powers 
except our own,, but in theory, they still exist. At the present time, if any governments 
make themselves objectionable to us, it is only a formality, and undertaken with our full 
knowledge and consent, as we need their anti-Semitic outbursts in order to enable us to 
keep our small brothers in order. I will not enlarge upon this point, for it has already 
formed the subject of many discussions. 


As a matter of fact we are encountered by no opposition. Our government is in so 
exceedingly strong a position in the sight of the law that we may almost describe it by the 
powerful expression of dictatorship. I can honestly say that at the present time we are 
legislators, we sit in judgment and inflict punishments, we execute and pardon, we are, as 
it were, the commander-in-chief of all armies, riding at their head. We rule by mighty 
force, because in our hands remain the fragments of a once powerfuU party, now under 
our subjection. We possess boundless ambitions, devouring greed, merciless revenge and 
intense hatred. We are the source of a far-reaching terror. We employ in our service 
people of all opinions and all parties: men desiring to reestablish monarchies, socialists, 
communists, and supporters of all kinds of Utopias. We have put them all into harness; 
each one of them in his own way undermines the remnant of power and tries to destroy 
all existing laws. By this procedure all governments are tormented, they yell for rest and, 
for the sake of peace, are prepared to make any sacrifice. But will not give them any 
peace until they humbly recognize our international super-government. 


The populace clamoured for the necessity of solving the social problem by international 
means. Dissensions among parties handed these over to us, because in order to conduct 
an opposition money is essential, and money is under our control. 


We have feared the alliance of the experienced Gentile sovereign power with that of the 
blind power of the mob, but all measures to prevent the possibility of such an occurrence 
have been taken by us. Between these two powers we have erected a wall in the form of 
the terror which they entertain for one another. Thus the blind power of the populace 
remains a support on our side. We alone will be its leaders, and will guide it towards the 
attainment of our object. In order that the hand of the blind should not free itself from our 
grip, we must be in constant contact with the masses if not personally, at any rate through 
our most faithful brothers. When we become a recognised power we will personally 
address populace in the market places, and will instruct it in political matters in whatever 
direction may suit our convenience. 


How are we to verify what the people are taught in country schools? But it is certain that 
what is said by the envoy of the government, or by the sovereign himself, cannot fail to 
be known to the whole nation, as it is soon spread by the voice of the people. 


In order not to destroy the institutions of the Gentiles prematurely, we reached them with 
our experienced hand and secured the ends of the springs in their mechanism. The latter 
formerly were in severe but just order; for them we have substituted disorderly liberal 
management. We have had a hand in jurisdiction, electioneering, in the management of 
the press, in furthering the liberty of the individual, and, what is still more important, in 
education, which constitutes the main support of free existence. 


We have befooled and corrupted the rising generation, of the Gentiles by educating them 
in principles and theories known to us to be thoroughly false, but which we ourselves 
have inculcated. Without actually amending the laws already in force, but by simply 
distorting them and by placing interpretations upon them which were not intended by 
those who framed them, we have obtained an extraordinarily useful result. 


These results became at first apparent by the fact that our interpretation concealed the real 
meaning of the laws, and subsequently rendered them so unintelligible that it was 
impossible for the government to disentangle such a confused code of laws. 


Hence the theory arose of not adhering to the letter of the law, but of judging by 
conscience. It is contended that nations can rise in arms against us if our plans are 
discovered prematurely; but in anticipation of this we can rely upon throwing into action 
such a formidable force as will make even the bravest of men shudder. By then 
metropolitan railways and underground passages will be constructed in all cities. From 
these subterranean places we will explode all the cities of the world, together with their 
institutions and documents. (Probably figurative, referring to such means as Bolshevism.) 



Today I will begin by repeating what has been previously mentioned, and I beg all of you 
to bear in mind that in politics, governments and nations are satisfied by the showy side 
of everything; yes, and how should they have time to examine the inner side of things 
when their representatives only think of amusements? 


It is most important for our politics to bear in mind the above-mentioned detail, as it will 
be of great help to us, when discussing such questions as the distribution of power, 
freedom of speech, freedom for the press and religion, rights of forming associations, 
equality in the sight of the law, inviolability of property and domicile, the question of 
taxation (idea of secret taxation) and the retrospective force of laws. All similar questions 
are of such a nature that it is not advisable to openly discuss them in front of the 
populace. But in cases where it is imperative that these should be mentioned to the mob 
they must not be enumerated but, without going into detail, statements should be made 
concerning the principles of modern right as recognised by us. The importance of 
reticence lies in the fact that a principle which has not been openly declared leaves us 
freedom of action, whereas such a principle, once declared, becomes as good as 


The nation holds the power of a political genius in special respect and endures all its 
high-handed actions, and thus regards them: "What a dirty trick, but how skilfully 
executed!" "What a swindle, but how well and with what courage it has been done!" 


We count on attracting all nations to work on the construction of the foundations of the 
new edifice which has been planned by us. For this reason it is necessary for us to acquire 
the services of bold and daring agents, who will be able to overcome all obstacles in the 
way of our progress. 


When we accomplish our coup d'etat, we will say to the people: "Everything has been 
going very badly; all of you have suffered; now we are destroying the cause of your 
sufferings, that is to say, nationalities, frontiers and national currencies. Certainly you 
will be free to condemn us, but can your judgment be fair if you pronounce it before you 
have had experience of what we can do for your good?" 


Then they will carry us shoulder high in triumph, in hope and in exultation. Power of 
voting, in which we trained the most insignificant members of mankind by organising 
meetings and prearranged agreements, will then play its last part; this power, by the 
means of which we have "enthroned ourselves," will discharge its last debt to us in its 
anxiety to see the outcome of our proposition before pronouncing its judgment. 


In order to obtain an absolute majority we must induce everybody to vote, without 
discriminating between classes. Such a majority would not be obtained from educated 
classes or from a society divided into castes. 


Having then inspired every man's mind with the idea of his own self-importance, we will 
destroy the family life of the Gentiles and its educational importance; we will prevent 
men with clever brains from coming to the front, and such men the populace, under our 
guidance, will keep subdued and will not permit them even to state their plans. 


The mob is used to listen to us, who pay it for its attention and obedience. By these 
means we shall create such a blind force that it will never be capable of taking any 
decision without the guidance of our agents, placed by us for the purpose of leading 


The mob will submit to this system, because it will know that from these leaders will 
depend its wages, earnings, and all other benefits. The system of government must be the 
work of one head, because it will be impossible to consolidate it, if it is the combined 
work of numerous minds. That is why we are only allowed to know the plan of action, 
but must by no means discuss it in order not to destroy its efficacy, the functions of its 
separate parts and the practical meaning of each point. If such plans were to be discussed 
and altered by repeated submissions at the polls, they would be distorted by results of all 
mental misunderstandings: which arise owing to the voters not having fathomed the depth 
of their meanings. Therefore, it is necessary that our plans should be decisive and 
logically thought out. That is the reason why we must not throw the great work of our 
leader to be torn to pieces by the mob, or even by a small clique. For the present these 
plans will not upset existing institutions. They will only alter their theory of economy, 
and therefore all their course of procedures, which will then inevitably follow the way 
prescribed by our plans. In all countries there exist the same institutions only different 
names: the houses of representatives of people, the ministries, the senate, a privy council 
of sorts, legislative and administrative departments. 


I need not explain to you the connecting mechanism of these different institutions, as it is 
already well known to you. Only note that each of the above-mentioned institutions 
corresponds to some important function of the government. (I use the word "important" 
not with reference to the institutions, but with reference to their functions.) 


All these institutions have divided among themselves all functions of government, that is 
to say, administrative, legislative, and executive powers. And their functions have 
become similar to those of the divers separate organs of the human body. 


If we injure any part of the government machinery, the state will fall sick as a human 
body and will die. When we injected the poison of liberalism into the organism of the 
state its political complexion changed; the states became infected with a mortal illness, 
that is, decomposition of the blood. There remains only to await the end of their agonies. 
Liberalism gave birth to constitutional governments, which took the place of autocracy — 
the only wholesome form of government for the Gentiles. Constitution, as you know for 
yourselves, is nothing more than a school for dissensions, disagreements, quarrels, and 
useless party agitations; in brief, it is the school of everything that weakens the efficiency 
of the government. The tribune, as well as the Press, has tended to make the rulers 
inactive and weak, thus rendering them useless and superfluous, and for this reason they 
were deposed in many countries. 


Then the institution of a republican era became possible; and then, in the place of the 
sovereign, we put a caricature of the same in the person of a president, whom we chose 
from the mob from among our creatures and our slaves. 


Thus we laid the mine which we have placed under Gentiles, or rather under the Gentile 
nations. In the near future we will make the president a responsible person. 


Then we will have no scruples in boldly applying the plans, for which our own "dummy" 
will be responsible. What does it matter to us if the ranks of place-hunters become weak, 
if confusions arise from the fact that a president cannot be found — confusions which will 
definitely disorganize the country? 


In order to achieve these results, we will prearrange for the election of such presidents, 
whose past record is marked with some "Panama" scandal or other shaddy hidden 
transaction. A president of such a kind will be a faithful executor of our plans, as he will 
fear denouncement, and will be under the influence of the fear which always possesses a 
man who has attainted power and anxious to retain the privileges and honours associated 
with his high office. The House of Representatives will elect, protect, and screen the 
president; but we will deprive this House of its power of introducing and altering laws. 


This power we will give to the responsible president, who will be a mere puppet in our 
hands. In that case the power of the president will become a targett exposed to various 
attacks, but we will give him means of defense in his right of appeal to the people above 
the heads of the representatives of the nation, that is to say, direct the people, who are our 
blind slaves — the majority of the mob. 


Moreover, we will empower the president to proclaim martial law. We will explain this 
prerogative by fact that the president, being head of the army, must have the same under 
his command for the protection of the new republican constitution, which protection is 
his duty as its responsible representative. 


Of course, under such conditions, the key of the inner position will be in our hands, and 
none other than ourselves will control legislation. 


Moreover, when we introduce the new republican constitution, we will, under pretext of 
state secrecy, deprive the house of its right of questioning the desirability of measures 

taken by the Government. By this new constitution we will also reduce the number of the 
representatives of the nation to a minimum, thus also reducing an equivalent number of 
political passions, and passion for politics. If, in spite of this, they should become 
recalcitrant, we will abolish the remaining representatives by appealing to the nation. It 
will be the President's prerogative to appoint the chairman and vice-chairman of the 
house of representatives and of the senate. In place of continuous, sessions of parliaments 
we will institute sessions of a few months' duration. Moreover, the president, as head of 
the executive power, will have the right to convene or dissolve parliament and, in case of 
dissolution, to defer the convocation of a new parliament. But, in order that the president 
should not be held responsible for the consequences of these, strictly speaking, illegal 
acts, before our plans have matured, we will persuade the Ministers and other high 
administrative officials, who surround the president, to circumvent his orders by issuing 
instructions of their own and thus compel them to bear the responsibility instead of the 
President. This function we would especially recommend to be allotted to the senate, to 
the council of state, or to the cabinet, but not to individuals. Under our guidance the 
President will interpret laws, which might be understood in ways. 


Moreover he will annul laws in cases when we consider this to be desirable. He will also 
have the right to propose new temporary laws and even modifications in the 
constitutional work of the government, using as a motive for so doing the exigencies of 
the welfare of country. 


Such measures will enable us to gradually withdraw any rights and indulgences that we 
may have been forced to grant when we first assumed power. Such indulgences we will 
have to introduce in the constitution of governments in order to conceal the gradual 
abolition of all constitutional rights, when the time comes to change all existing 
governments for our autocracy. The recognition of our autocrat may possibly be realised 
before the abolition of constitutions, namely, the recognition of our rule will start from 
the very moment when the people, torn by dissensions and smarting under the insolvency 
of rulers (which will have been pre-arranged by us), will yell out: "Depose them, and give 
us one world-ruler, could unify us and destroy all causes of dissension, namely, frontiers, 
nationalities, religions, state debts, etc. ... a ruler who could give us peace and rest, 
which we cannot find under the government of our sovereigns and representatives." 


But you know full well for yourselves that, in order that the multitude should yell for 
such a request, it is imperative in all countries to continually disturb the relationship 
which exists between people and governments — hostilities, wars, hatred, and even 
martyrdom, with hunger and need, and with the inoculation of diseases, to such an extent, 
that the Gentiles should not see any exit from their troubles other than an appeal for the 
protection of our money and for our complete sovereignty. 


But if we give the nation time to take breath, another such opportunity would be hardly 
likely to recur. 



The council of state will accentuate the power of the ruler. In its capacity as an official 
legislative body it will be, as it were, a committee for issuing the rulers' commands. 


Here then is a programme of the new constitution, which we are preparing for the world. 
We will make laws, define constitutional rights, and administer such by means of (1) 
edicts of the legislative chamber, suggested by the president; (2) by means of general 

orders and orders of the senate and state council, and by means of decisions of the 
cabinet; and (3) when the opportune moment presents itself, by the means of a coup 


Thus, having roughly determined our plan of action, we will discuss such details as may 
be necessary for us to accomplish the revolution in the sets of wheels of the state 
mechanism in the direction which I have already, indicated. By these details I mean 
freedom of the press, the rights of forming societies, freedom of religion, election of 
representatives of the people, and many other rights, which will have to vanish from the 
daily life of man. If they do not altogether vanish, they will have to be fundamentally 
changed the day after the announcement of the new constitution. It would only be at this 
particular moment that it would be quite safe for us to announce all our changes, and for 
the following reason: all perceptible changes at any other time might prove dangerous, 
because, if they were forcibly introduced and strictly and indiscriminately enforced, they 
might exasperate the people, as these would fear fresh changes in similar directions. On 
the other hand, if the changes were to entail yet more indulgences, people would say that 
we recognize our mistakes and that might detract irom the glory of infallibility of the new 
power. They might also say that we had been frightened and were forced to yield. And 
were this the case, the world would never thank us, as they regard it as a right always to 
have concessions made to them. If either of these impressions were made on the mind of 
the public, it would be extremely dangerous for the prestige of the new constitution. 


It is essential for us that, from the first moment of its proclamation, whilst the people will 
be still suffering from the effects of the sudden change and will be in a state of terror and 
indecision, that they should realise that we are so powerful, so invulnerable, and so full of 
might, that we shall in no case take their interests into consideration. We shall want them 
to understand that we will not only ignore their opinion and wishes, but will be ready at 
any moment or place to suppress with a strong hand any expression or hint of opposition. 
We shall want the people to understand that we have taken everything we wanted and 
that we will not, under any circumstances, allow them to share our power. Then they will 
close their eyes to everything out of fear and will patiently await further developments. 


The Gentiles are like a flock of sheep — we are the wolves. And do you not know what 
the sheep do when wolves penetrate in to the sheepfold? They close their eyes to 
everything. To this they will be also driven because we will promise to return to them all 
their liberties after subduing the world's enemies and after bringing all parties into 
subjection. I need hardly tell you how long they would have to wait for the return of their 


For what reason were we induced to invent our policy and to instill the same into the 
Gentiles? We instilled this policy into them without letting them understand its inner 
meaning. What prompted us to adopt such a line of action, if it was not because we could 
not, as a scattered race, attain our object by direct means, but only by circumvention? 
This was the real cause and origin of our organisation of masonry, which those swine of 
Gentiles do not fathom, and the aims of which they do not even suspect. They are 
decoyed by us into our mass of lodges, which appear to be nothing more than masonic in 
order to throw dust in the eyes of their comrades. 


By the mercy of God His chosen people were scattered, and in this dispersal, which 
seemed to the world to be our weakness, has proved to be all our power, which has now 
brought us to the threshold of universal sovereignty. 


We have not much more to build on these foundations in order to attain our aims. 



The word liberty, which can be interpreted in divers ways, we will define thus: "Liberty 
is the right of doing what is permitted by law." Such a definition of this word will be 
useful to us in this way, that it will rest with us to say where there shall be liberty and 
where there may not, and for the simple reason that law will permit only what is desirable 
to us. 


With the Press we will deal in the following manner: What is the part played by the Press 
at the present time? It serves to rouse in the people furious passions or sometimes egoistic 
party disputes, which may be necessary for our purpose. It is often empty, unjust, false, 
and most people do not in the least understand its exact purposes. We will harness it and 
will guide it with firm reins, we will also have to gain control of all other publishing 
firms. It would be of no use for us to control the newpaper press, if we were still to 
remain exposed to the attacks of pamphlets and books. We will turn the, at present, 
expensive production of publication into a profitable resource to our government by 
introducing a special stamp duty, and by forcing publishers and typographers to pay us a 
deposit, in order to guarantee our government from any assaults on the part of the press. 
In case of an attack, we will impose fines right and left. Such measures as stamps, 
deposits, and fines will be a large source of income to the government. Certainly party 
papers would mind paying heavy fines, but, after a second serious attack on us, we would 
suppress them altogether. No one will be able with impunity to touch the prestige of our 
political infallibility. For closing down publications we will the following pretext: The 
publication, which is suppressed excites, we will say, public opinion without any ground 
or foundation. But I would ask you to bear in mind that amongst the aggressive 
publications will be those which have been instituted by us for this purpose. But they will 
only attack such points in our policy as we intend changing. No piece of information will 
society without passing through our control. This we are attaining even at the present 
time by the fact that all news is received by a few agencies, in which it is centralized 
from all parts of the world. When we attain power these agencies will belong to us 
entirely and will only publish such news as we choose to allow. 


If under the present conditions we have managed to gain control of the Gentile society to 
such an extent that it surveys the world's affairs through the coloured glasses which we 
put over its eyes; if even now there exists no impediment to hinder our access to state 
secrets, as they are called by the stupidity of the Gentiles, what will be our position, when 
we shall be officially recognized as rulers of the world, in the person of our world- 
governing Emperor? 


Let us return to the future of the press. Anybody desiring to become an editor, librarian, 
or printer, will be compelled to obtain a certificate and licence, which, in case of 
disobedience, would be withdrawn. The canals, through which human thought finds its 
expression, will by these means be delivered into the hands of our government, which 
will use the same as an educational organ, and will thus prevent the public from being 
drawn astray by idealising "progress" and liberalism. Who of us does not know that this 
fantastic blessing is a straight road to Utopia, from which have sprung anarchy and hatred 
towards authority? This is for the simple reason that "progress," or rather the idea of 
liberal progress, gave the people different ideas of emancipation, without setting any limit 
to it. All so-called liberals are anarchists, if not in their action, certainly by ideas. Each 
one of them runs after the phantom of liberty, thinking that he can do whatever he wishes, 
that is to say, falling into a state of anarchy in the opposition which he offers for the mere 
sake of opposition. 


Let us now discuss the press. We will tax it in the same manner as the newspaper press — 
that is to say, by means of excise stamps and deposits. But on books of less than 300 
pages we will place a tax twice as heavy. These short books we will classify as pamphlets 
in order to diminish the publication of periodicals, which constitute the most virulent 
form of printed poison. These measures will also compel writers to publish such long 
works that they will be little read by the public, and chiefly so on account of their high 
price. We ourselves will publish cheap works in order to educate and set the mind of the 
public in the direction that we desire. Taxation will bring about a reduction in the writing 

of aimless leisure literature, and the fact that they are responsible before the law will 
place authors in our hands. No one desirous of attacking us with his pen would find a 


Before printing any kind of work, the publisher or printer will have to apply to the 
authorities for a permit to publish the said work. Thus we shall know beforehand of any 
conspiracy against us, and we shall be able knock it on the head by anticipating the plot 
and publishing an explanation. 


Literature and journalism are the two most important educational powers; for this reason 
our government will buy up the greater number of periodicals. By these means we shall 
neutralise the bad influence of the private press and obtain an enormous influence over 
the human mind. If we were to allow ten private periodicals we should ourselves start 
thirty, and so forth. 


But the public must not have the slightest suspicion of these measures, therefore all 
periodicals published by us will seem to be of contradictory views and opinions, thus 
inspiring confidence and presenting an attractive appearance to our unsuspecting 
enemies, who will thus fall into our trap and will be disarmed. 


In the front row we will place the official press. It will always be on guard in defence of 
our interests and therefore its influence on the public will be comparatively insignificant. 
In the second row we will place the semi-official press, the duty of which will be to 
attract the indifferent and lukewarm. In the third row we will place what will purport to 

be our opposition, which in one of its publications will appear to be our adversary. Our 
real enemies will take this opposition into their confidence and will let us see their cards. 


All our newspapers will support different parties — aristocratic, republican, revolutionary, 
and even anarchical — but, of course, only so long as constitutions last. These newspapers, 
like the Indian god Vishnu, will be possessed of hundreds of hands, each of which will be 
feeling the pulse of varying public opinion. 


When the pulse becomes quick, these hands will incline this opinion towards our cause, 
because a nervous subject is easily led and easily falls under any kind of influence. 


If any chatterers are going to imagine that they are repeating the opinion of their party 
newspaper, they will in reality be repeating our own opinion, or the opinion which we 
desire. Thinking that they are following the organ of this party, they will in reality be 
following the flag which we will fly for them. In order that our newspaper army may 
carry out the spirit of this programme of appearing to support various parties, we must 
organise our press with great care. 


Under the name of Central Commission of the Press, we will organise literary meetings, 
at which our agents unnoticed will give the countersign and the passwords. By discussing 
and contradicting our policy, of course always superficially, without really touching on 
the important parts of it, our organs will carry on feigned debates with official 
newspapers in order to give us an excuse for defining our plans with more accuracy than 
we could do in our preliminary announcements. But this, of course, only when it is to our 

advantage. This opposition on the part of the press will also serve the purpose of making 
the people believe that liberty of speech still exists. To our agents it win give an 
opportunity of showing that our opponents bring senseless accusations against us, being 
unable to find a real ground on which to refute our policy. 


Such measures, which will escape the notice of public attention, will be the most 
successful means of guiding the public mind and of inspiring confidence in favour of our 


Thanks to these measures, we will be able to excite or calm the public mind on political 
questions, when it becomes necessary for us to do so; we will be able to persuade or 
confuse them by printing true or false news, facts or contradictions, according as it will 
suit our purpose. The information which we will publish will depend on the manner in 
which the people are at the time accepting that kind of news, and we will always take 
great care to feel the ground before treading on it. 


The restrictions which, as I have said, we will impose on private publications, win enable 
us to make a certainty of defeating our enemies, because they will not have press organs 
at their disposal by means of which they could truly give full vent to their opinions. We 
shall not even have to make a thorough refutation of their statements. 


Ballons d' essai ("test ballons" — an experiment to see how a new policy etc. will be 
received. Concise Oxford Dictionary ), which we will throw into the third row of our 
press, we will, if necessary, semi-officially refute. 


Already there exists in French journalism a system of masonic understanding for giving 
countersigns. All organs of the press are tied by mutual professional secrets in manner of 
the ancient oracles. Not one of its members will betray his knowledge of the secret, if 
such a secret has not been ordered to be made public. No single publisher will have the 
courage to betray the secret entrusted to him, the reason being that not one of them is 
admitted into the literary world without bearing the marks of some shady act in his past 
life. He would only have to show the least sign of disobedience and tpe mark would be 
immediately revealed. Whilst these marks remain known only to a few, the prestige of the 
journalist attracts public opinion throughout the country. The people follow and admire 


Our plans must extend chiefly to the provinces. It is essential for us to create such ideas 
and inspire such opinions there as we could at any time launch on the capital by 
producing them as the neutral views of the provinces. 


Of course, the source and origin of the idea would not be altered: namely, it would be 


It is imperative for us that, before we assume power, cities should sometimes be under 
the influence of the opinion of the provinces — that is to say, that they should know the 
opinion of the majorjty, which will have been prearranged by us. It is necessary for us 
that the capitals, at the critical psychological moment, should not have time to discuss an 
accomplished fact, but should accept it simply because it has been passed by a majority in 
the provinces. 


When we reach the period of the new regime — that is to say, during the transition stage to 
our sovereignty — we must not allow the press to publish any account of criminal cases; it 
will be essential that people should think that the new regime is so satisfactory that even 
crime has ceased. 


Where criminal cases occur, they must remain known only to their victim and anyone 
who may have chanced to witness them, and to these alone. 



-The need of daily bread will force the Gentiles to hold their tongues and to remain our 
humble servants. Those of the Gentiles whom we may be employing in our press will, 
under orders from us, discuss facts to which it would not be desirable that we should 
especially refer in our official gazette. And, whilst all manner of discussions and disputes 
are thus taking place, we will pass the laws which we need and will place them before the 
public an accomplished fact. 


No one will dare to demand that what has been decided on should be repealed, more 
especially as we will make it appear as if it were our intention to help progress. Then the 
press will draw the attention of the public away by new propositions (you know for 
yourselves that we have always taught the populace to seek new emotions). Brainless 
political adventurers will hasten to discuss the new problems, such people who even 
nowadays do not understand what they are talking about. Political problems are not 
meant to be understood by ordinary people; they can only be comprehended, as I have 
said before, by rulers who have been directing affairs for many centuries. From all this 
you may conclude that, when we shall defer to public opinion, we shall do so in order to 
ease the working of our machinery. You can also perceive that we seek approval for the 
various questions not by deeds, but by words. We continually assert that, in all our 
measures, we are guided by the hope and certainty of serving the common welfare. 


In order to distract overrestless people from discussin political questions, we provide 
them with new problems — that is to say, those of trade and commerce. Over such 
questions let them become as excited as they like! The masses consent to abstain and 
desist from what they think is political activity only if we can give them some new 
amusements, that is to say, commerce, which we try and make them believe is also a 
political question. We ourselves induced the masses to take part in politics in order to 
secure their support in our campaign against the Gentile governments. 


In order to keep them from discovering for themselves any new line of action in politics, 
we will also distract them by various kinds of amusements, games, pastimes, passions, 
public houses, and so on. 


Soon we shall start advertising in the press, inviting people to enter for various 
competitions in all manner of enterprises, such as art, sport, etc. These new interests will 
definitely distract the public mind from such questions which we would have to contest 
with the populace. As the people will gradually lose the gift of thinking for themselves. 

they will shout together with us, for the sole reason that we shall be the only members of 
society who will be in a position to advance new lines of thought, which lines we will 
advance by means of using as our tools only such persons as could not be suspected of 
being allied with us. The part of liberal idealists will be definitely terminated when our 
government is recognised. Until then they will do us good service. For this reason we will 
try to direct the public mind towards every kind of fantastic theory which could appear 
progressive or liberal. It was we who, with complete success, turned the braipless heads 
of the Gentiles by our theories of progress towards socialism; there is not to be found a 
brain among the Gentiles which would perceive that in every instance, behind the word 
"progress" is hidden a deviation from the truth, except in such cases where this word 
refers to scientific discoveries. For there is but one true teaching, and in it there is no 
room for "progress." Progress, like a false idea, serves to conceal the truth in order that 
nobody should know truth besides ourselves, God's Chosen People, whom he has elected 
as its guardian. 


When we get into power, our orators will discuss the great problems which have been 
convulsing humanity in order, in the end, to bring mankind under our blessed rule. 


Who will, then, suspect that all these problems were instigated by us in accordance with a 
political scheme which has been understood by no man for so many centuries? 



When we establish ourselves as lords of the earth, will not tolerate any other religion 
except that of our own, namely, a religion recognising God alone, with whom our fate is 
bound by His election of us and by Whom also the fate of the world is determined. 


For this reason we must destroy all professions of faith. If the temporary result of this is 
to produce atheists, it will not interfere with our object, but will act as an example to 
those generations to come, who will listen to our teaching on the religion of Moses 
which, by its resolute and well-considered doctrine, committed to us the duty of subduing 
all nations under our feet. 


By doing this we shall also lay stress on the mystic truths of the Mosaic teachings on 
which, we shall say, is based all its educative power. 


Then, on every possible occasion we will publish articles, in which we will compare our 
beneficial rule with that of the past. The state of blessedness and peace which will then 
exist, in spite of its having been brought about by centuries of disturbance, will also serve 
to illustrate the benevolence of our new rule. The mistakes made by the Gentiles in their 
administration will be demonstrated by us in the most vivid colours. We will start such a 
feeling of disgust towards the former regime that the nations will prefer a state of peace 
in a condition of enslavement, to the rights of the much-lauded liberty, which has so 
cruelly tortured them and drained from them the very source of human existence, and to 
which they were really only instigated by a crowd of adventurers who knew not what 
they did. 


Useless changes of government, to which we have been prompting the Gentiles and by 
this means undermining their state edifice, will by that time have so worried the nations 
that they will prefer to endure anything from us out of fear of having to return to the 
turmoils and misfortunes which they will have gone through. We will draw special 
attention to the historical mistakes of the Gentile Governments, by which they tormented 
humanity for so many centuries in their lack of understanding anything that regards true 
welfare of human life and in their search for fantastic plans of social welfare. For the 
Gentiles have not noticed that their plans, instead of improving the relations of man to 
man, have only made them worse and worse. And these relations are the very foundations 
of human existence. The whole force of our principles and measures will be in the fact 
that they will he explained by us as being in bright contrast to the hroken-down regime of 
former social conditions. 


Our philosophers will expose all the disadvantages of Gentile religions, but no one will 
ever judge our religion from its true point of view, because nobody will ever have a 
thorough knowledge of it except our own people, who will never venture to unveil its 


In the so-considered leading countries, we have circulated an insane, dirty and disgusting 
literature. For a short time after the recognition of our rule, we shall continue to 
encourage the prevalence of such a literature, in order that it should the more pointedly 
mark the contrast of the teachings which we will issue from our exalted position. Our 
learned men, who were educated for the purpose of leading the Gentiles, will make 
speeches, draw up plans, sketch notes and write articles, by means of which we will 
influence men's minds, inclining them towards that knowledge and those ideas which suit 



When we shall eventually have obtained power by means of a number of coups d' etat 
which will be arranged by us, so that they should take place simultaneously in all 
countries, and immediately after their respective governments shall have been officially 
pronounced as incapable of ruling the populace — a considerable period of time may 
elapse before this is realised, perhaps a whole century — we will make every endeavour to 
prevent conspiracies being made against us. In order to attain this end we will make 
merciless use of executions with regard to all who may take up arms against the 
establishment of our power. 


The institutions of any fresh secret society will also be punishable by death; but those 
secret societies which exist at the present time and which are known to us, which are 
serving and have served our purpose, we will dismiss and exile their members to remote 
parts of the world. Such is the manner in which we will deal with any Gentile 
Freemasons who may know more than will suit our convenience. Such masons whom we 
may for some reason or other pardon, we shall keep in continual fear of being sent into 
exile. We will pass a law which will condemn all former members of secret societies to 
be exiled from Europe-J where we shall have the centre of our government. 


The decisions of our Government will be final, and no one will have the right of appeal. 


In order to call to heel all Gentile societies, in which we have so deeply implanted 
dissensions and the tenets of the protestant religion, merciless measures will have to be 
introduced. Such measures should show the nations that our power cannot be infringed. 
We must take no account of the numerous victims who will have to be sacrificed in order 
to obtain future prosperity. 


To attain prosperity even by means of numerous sacrifices is the duty of a government, 
which realises that the conditions of its existence do not only lie in the privileges which it 
enjoys, but also in the executions of its duty. 


The main condition of its stability lies in the strengthening of the prestige of its power, 
and this prestige can only be obtained by majestic and unshakable might, which should 
show that it is inviolable and surrounded by a mystic power; for example, that it is by 
God appointed. 


Such has been, up to the present time, the Russian Autocracy, our only dangerous enemy, 
if we are not to include the Holy See. Remember, at the time when Italy was streaming 
with blood, she did not touch a hair of Silla's head, and he was the man who made her 
blood pour out. Owing to his strength of character, Silla became a god in the eyes of the 
populace, and his fearless return to Italy made him inviolable. The populace will not 
harm the man who hypnotises it by his courage and strength of mind. 


Until the time when we attain power we will try to create and multiply lodges of 
freemasons in all parts of the world. We will entice into these lodges all, who may 

become, or who are known to be public-spirited. These lodges will be the main place 
from which we shall obtain our information, as well as being propaganda centres. 


We will centralise all these lodges under one management, known to us alone, and which 
will consist of our learned men. These lodges will also have their own representatives, in 
order to screen where the management really lies. And this management will alone have 
the right of deciding who may speak, and of drawing up the order of the day. In these 
lodges we will tie the knot of all socialistic and revolutionary classes of society. The most 
secret political plans will be known to us and will be guided by us in their execution as 
soon as they are formed. 


Nearly all the agents in the international and secret police will be members of our lodges. 


The services of the police are of extreme importance to us, as they are able to throw a 
screen over our enterprises, invent reasonable explanations for discontent among the 
masses, as well as punish those who to submit. 


Most people who enter secret societies are adventurers, who want somehow to make their 
way in life, and who are not seriously minded. 


With such people it will be easy for us to pursue our object, and we will make them set 
our machinery in motion. 


If the whole world becomes perturbed, it will only signify that it was necessary for us to 
so perturb it in order to destroy its too great solidity. If conspiracies start in the midst of 
it, this will mean that one of our most faithful agents is at the head of the said conspiracy. 
It is only natural that we should be the sole people who direct masonic enterprises. We 
are the only people who know how to direct them. We know the final aim of each action, 
whereas the Gentiles are ignorant of most things concerning masonry, they cannot even 
see the immediate results of what they are doing. They generally think only of the 
immediate advantages of the moment, and are content if their pride is satisfied in the 
fulfilment of their intention, and do not perceive that the original idea was not their own, 
but was inspired by ourselves. 


The Gentiles frequent Masonic Lodges out of pure curiosity, or in the hope of receiving 
their share of the good things which are going, and some of them do so in, order to be 
able to discuss their own idiotic ideas before an audience. The Gentiles are on the look- 
out for the emotions of success and applause; these are distributed freely by us. That is 
why we let them have their sudcess; in order to turn to our advantage the men possessed 
by feelings of self-pride, who, without noticing it, absorb our ideas, confident in the 
conviction of their own infallibility, and that they alone have ideas and are not subject to 
the influence of others. 


You have no idea how easy it is to bring even the most clever of the Gentiles to a 
ridiculous state of naivete by working on his conceit, and, on the other hand, how easy it 
is to discourage him by the smallest failure or even by simply ceasing to applaud him and 
thus bring him to a state of servile subjection, holding out to him the prospect of some 

new success. Just as our people despise success, and are only anxious to see their plans 
realised, so the Gentiles love success and are prepared to sacrifice all their plans for its 
sake. This feature in the character of the Gentiles renders it much easier for us to do what 
we like with them. Those who appear to be tigers are as stupid as sheep, and their heads 
are full of emptiness. 


We will let them ride in their dreams on the horse of idle hopes of destroying human 
individuality by symbolic ideas of collectivism. They have not yet understood, and never 
will understand, that, this wild dream is contrary to the principal law of nature, which, 
from the beginning of the world, created a being unlike all others in order that he should 
have individuality. 


Does not the fact that we were capable of bringing the Gentiles to such an erroneous idea 
prove, with striking clearness, what a narrow conception they have of human life in 
comparison with ourselves? Herein lies the greatest hope of our success. How farseeing 
were our wise men of old when they told us that, in order to attain a really great object we 
must not stop short before the means, nor count the number of victims who must be 
sacrificed for the achievement of the cause! We never counted the victims of the seed of 
those brutes of Gentiles, and, although we have sacrificed many of our own people, we 
have already given them such a position in this world as they formerly never dreamt that 
they would attain. Comparatively few victims on our side have safeguarded our nation 
from destruction. Every man must inevitably end by death. It is better to hasten this end 
in the case of people who impede our cause than in that of those who advance it. We put 
freemasons to death in such a manner that no one, except the brotherhood, can have the 
least suspicion of the fact; not even the victims suspect beforehand. They all die, when it 
is necessary, apparently from a natural death. Knowing these facts, even the brotherhood 
itself dares not protest against it. 


By such means we have cut to the very root of protest against our orders so far as the 
freemasons themselves are concerned. We preach liberalism to the Gentiles, but on the 
other hand we keep our own nation in entire subjection. 


Under our influence the laws of the Gentiles have been obeyed as little as possible. The 
prestige of their laws has been undermined by liberal ideas, which have been introduced 
by us into their midst. The most important questions, both political and moral, are 
decided by the Courts of Justice in whatever manner we prescribe. The Gentile 
administrator of justice looks upon cases in whatever light we choose to expose them. 
This we accomplished by means of our agents and people with whom we appear to have 
no connection: opinions of the press and other means; even senators and other high 
officials blindly follow our advice. 


The brain of the Gentile, being of a purely bestial character, is incapable of analysing and 
observing anything and moreover of foreseeing to what the development of a case may 
lead if it is placed in a certain light. 


It is just in this difference of mentality between the Gentiles and ourselves that we can 
easily see the mark of our election by God and superhuman nature, when it is compared 
with the instinctive bestial brain of the Gentiles. They only see facts, but do not foresee 
them, and are incapable of inventing anything, with the exception, perhaps, only of things 
material. From all this it is clear that nature herself meant us to lead and rule the world. 
When the time comes for us to govern openly, the moment will come to show the 
benevolence of our rule, and we shall amend all the laws. Our laws will be short, clear 
and concise, requiring no interpretation, so that everybody will be able to know them 
inside out. The main feature in them will be the obedience required towards authority, 
and this respect for authority will be carried to a very high pitch. Then all kinds of abuse 
of power will cease, because everybody will be responsible before the one supreme 
power, namely that of the sovereign. The abuse of power on the part of people other than 

the sovereign will be so severely punished that all will lose the desire to try their strength 
in this respect. 


We shall closely watch each step taken by our administrative body, from which will 
depend the working of the state machine; because, if the administration becomes slack, 
disorder will arise everywhere. Not a single illegal act or abuse of power will remain 


All acts of conceahnent and of wilful neglect on part of officials of the administration 
will disappear after they have seen the first examples of punishment. 


The grandness of our might will require that suitable punishments should be awarded, 
that is to say, that they should be harsh, even in the case of the smallest attempt to violate 
the prestige of our authority for the sake of personal gain. The man who suffers for his 
faults, even if too severely, will be like a soldier dying on the battlefied of the 
administration in the cause of power, principle, and law, which admit of no deviation 
from the public path for the sake of personal interests, even in the case of those who drive 
the public chariot. For example, our judges will know that, by attempting to show their 
indulgence, they will violate the law of justice, which is made in order to award an 
exemplary punishment to men for the offences which they have committed, and not in 
order to enable the judge to show his clemency. This good quality ought only to be 
shown in private life, and not in the official capacity of a judge, which influences the 
whole basis of the education of mankind. 


Members of the law will not serve in the courts after 55 years of age for the following 

1 . Because old men adhere more firmly to preconceived ideas and are less capable of 
obeying new orders. 

2. Because such a measure will enable us to make frequent changes in the staff, which 
will thus be subject to any pressure on our part. Any man who wishes to retain his post 
will, in order to secure this, have to obey us blindly. In general our judges will be selected 
from among men who understand that their duty is to punish and to apply laws, and not to 
indulge in dreams of liberalism, which might injure the educational scheme of the 
government, as the Gentile judges at present do. Our scheme for changing officials will 
also help us to destroy any kind of combination which they might form among 
themselves, and so they will work solely in the interest of the government, from which 
their fate will depend. The rising generation of judges will be so educated that they will 
instinctively prevent any action which might harm the existing relations of our subjects 
one to another. 


At present judges of the Gentiles are indulgent to all manner of criminals, for they do not 
possess the correct idea of their duty, and for the simple reason that rulers, when 
appointing judges, do not impress the idea of their duty upon them. 


The rulers of the Gentiles, when nominating their subjects to important posts, do not 
trouble to explain to them the importance of the same and for what purpose the posts in 
question were created; they act like animals when these send their young out in search of 
prey. Thus the governments of the Gentiles fall to pieces at the hands of their own 
administrators. We will take more moral, drawn from the results of the system adopted by 
the Gentiles, and use it for the edification of our government. 


We will root out all liberal tendencies from every important institution of propaganda in 
our government, from which may depend the education of all those who will be our 
subjects. These important posts will be reserved exclusively for those who were specially 
educated for administration. 


Should it be observed that to put our officials prematurely on the retired list might prove 
too expensive for our government, I will reply that, first of all, we shall try to find private 
occupation for such officials in order to compensate them for the loss of their posts in 
government employment, or else that, in any case, our government will be in possession 
of all the money in the world, therefore expense will not come into consideration. 


Our autocracy will be consistent in all its actions, therefore any decision which our high 
command may choose to take will always be treated with respect and unconditionally 
obeyed. We shall ignore any kind of grumbling or dissatisfaction, and punish every sign 
of discontent so severely that other people will accept it as an example for themselves. 


We will cancel the right of appeal and reserve it only for our own use; the reason being 
that we must not allow the idea to grow up among the people that our judges are capable 
of erring in their decisions. 


In case of a judgment requiring revision, we will immediately depose the judge in 
question and publicly punish him, in order that such an error should not occur again. 


I repeat what I have said before, namely that one of our main principles will be to watch 
administrative officials, and this chiefly in order to satisfy the nation, because it has a full 
right to insist that a good government should have good administrative officials. 


Our government will bear the appearance of a patriarchal trust in the person of our ruler. 
Our nation and our subjects will look upon him as upon a father, who takes care to satisfy 
all their needs, looks after an their actions and arranges the dealings of his subjects one 
with another, as well as their dealings with the government. Thus the feeling of reverence 
towards the ruler will penetrate so deeply into the nation that it will not be able to exist 
without his care and leadership. They cannot live in peace without him, and will finally 
recognise him as their sovereign autocrat. 


The people will have such a deep feeling of reverence towards him as will approach 
adoration, especially when they are convinced that his officials blindly execute his order 
and that he alone rules over them. They will rejoice to see us regulate our lives as if we 
were parents desirous of educating their children with a keen sense of duty and 


As regards our secret policy, all nations are children, and their governments also. As you 
can see for yourselves, I base our despotism on Right and on Duty. The right of the 
government to insist that people should do their duty is in itself an obligation of the ruler, 
who is the father of his subjects. Right of might is granted to him in order that he should 
lead humanity in the direction laid down by the laws of nature, that is to say towards 


Every creature in this world is under subjection, if not under that of a man, then under 
that of circumstances or under that of its own nature, in any case under something that is 
more powerful than itself. Therefore let us be more powerful for the sake of the common 


We must, without hesitation, sacrifice such individuals as may have violated the existing 
order, because in exemplary punishment is the solution of the great educational problem. 


On the day when the King of Israel places upon his sacred head the crown, presented to 
him by the whole of Europe, he will become the Patriarch of the world. 


The number of victims, who will have to be sacrificed by our King, will never exceed the 
number of those who have been sacrificed by Gentile sovereigns in their quest for 
greatness and in their rivalry with one another. 


Our sovereign will be in constant communication with the people, he will deliver 
speeches from tribunes, which speeches will be immediately circulated all over the world. 



With the object of destroying any kind of collective enterprise, other than our own, we 
will annihilate collective work in its initial stage — that is to say, we will transform the 
universities and reconstruct them according to our own plans. 


The heads of the universities and their professors will be specially prepared by means of 
elaborate secret programmes of action, in which they will be instructed and from which 
they will not be able to deviate with impunity. They will be very carefully nominated and 
will be entirely dependent on the Government. We will exclude from our syllabus all 
teachings of civil law, as well as of other political subject. Only a few men from among 
the initiated will be selected for their conspicuous abilities, in order to be taught these 
sciences. Universities will not be allowed to turn out into the world green young: men 
with ideas on new constitutional reforms, as though these were comedies or tragedies, or 
who concern themselves with political questions, of which even their fathers had no 


A wrong acquaintance of politics among a mass of people is the source of Utopian ideas 
and makes them into bad subjects. This you can see for yourselves from the educational 
system of the Gentiles. We had to introduce all these principles into their educational 
system, in order that we might as successfully destroy their social structure as we have 
done. When we are in power we will remove from educational programmes all subjects 
which might upset the brains of youth and will make obedient children out of them, who 

will love their ruler and recognise in his person the main pillar of peace and of public 


Instead of classics and the study of ancient history, which contains more bad examples 
than good, we will introduce the study of the problems of the future. We will erase from 
the memory of man, the bygone ages, which may be unpleasant to us, leaving only such 
facts as would show the errors of the Gentile governments in marked colours. Subjects 
dealing with questions of practical life, social organisation and with the dealings of one 
man with another, as also lectures against bad selfish examples — which are infectious 
and cause evil, and all other similar questions of an instinctive character will be in the 
forefront of our educational programme. These programmes will be specially drawn up 
for the different classes and castes, the education of which will be kept strictly apart. 


It is most important to lay stress on this particular system. Each class or caste will have to 
be educated separately, according to its particular position and work. A chance genius 
always has known and always will know how to penetrate into a higher caste but, for the 
sake of this quite exceptional occurrence, it is not expedient to mix the education of the 
different castes and to admit such men into higher ranks, in order that they may only 
occupy the places of those who are born to fill them. You know for yourselves how fatal 
it was for the Gentiles when they gave way to the absolutely idiotic idea of making no 
difference between the social classes. 


In order that the sovereign should gain a firm place in the hearts of his subjects it is 
necessary that, during his reign, the nation should be taught, both in schools as well as in 
public places, the importance of his activity and the benevolence of his enterprise. 


We will abolish every kind of private education. On holidays, students and their parents 
will have the right to attend meetings in their colleges as though these were clubs. At 
these meetings professors will deliver speeches, purporting to be free lectures, on 
questions of men's dealings with one another, on laws and on misunderstandings which 
are generally the outcome of a false conception of men's social position, and finally they 
will give lessons on new philosophical theories, which have not yet been revealed to the 
world. These theories we will make into doctrines of faith, using them as a stepping-stone 
to our Faith. 


When I have finished taking you through the whole programme and when we shall have 
finished discussing all our plans for the present and for the future, I will read to you the 
plan of that new philosophical theory. We know from the experience of many centuries, 
that men live and are guided by ideas and that people are inspired by these ideas only by 
means of education, which can be given with the same result to men of all ages, but of 
course by various means. By systematical education we shall take charge of whatever 
may remain of that independence of thought, of which we have been making full use for 
our own ends for some time past. We have already established the system of subduing 
men's minds by the so-called system of demonstrative education (teaching by sight), 
which is supposed to make the Gentiles incapable of thinking independently and so they 
will, like obedient animals, await the demonstration of an idea before they have grasped 
it. One of our best agents in France is Bouroy: he has already introduced the new system 
of demonstrative education. 



The profession of the law makes people grow cold, cruel, and obstinate and also deprives 
them of all principles and compels them to take a view of life which is not human, but 
purely legal. They have become used to look on circumstances purely from the point of 
view, of what is to be gained from defence and not from that of the effect which such a 
defence might have on the public welfare. 


A legal practitioner never refuses to defend any case. He will try to obtain an acquittal at 
all costs by clinging on to small tricky points in jurisprudence and by these means he will 
demoralise the court. 


Therefore we will limit the sphere of action of this profession and will place lawyers on a 
footing with executive officials. Barristers, as well as judges, will have no right to 
interview their clients and will receive their briefs only when they are assigned to them 
by the law court and they will study these solely from reports and documents, and will 
defend their clients after they have been examined in court by the prosecution, basing the 
defence of their clients on the result of this examination. Their fee be fixed, regardless of 
the fact whether the defence has been successful or not. They will become simple 
reporters on behalf of justice, counterbalancing the prosecutor, who will be a reporter on 
behalf of the prosecution. 


Thus legal procedure will be considerably shortened. By this means we shall also attain 
an honest impartial defence, which will be conducted not by material interests, but by the 
personal conviction of the lawyer. This will also have the advantage of putting an end to 
any bribery or corruption, which can at present take place in the law courts of some 


We have taken great care to discredit the clergy of the Gentiles in the eyes of the people, 
and thus have succeeded in injuring their mission, which could have been very much in 
our way. The influence of the clergy on the people is diminishing daily. 


Today freedom of religion prevails everywhere, and the time is only a few years off when 
Christianity will fall to pieces altogether. It will be still easier for us to deal with the other 
religions, but it is too early to discuss this point. 


We will confine the clergy and their teachings to such a small part in life and their 
influence will be made so uncongenial to the populace that their teachings will have the 
opposite effect to what it used to have. 


When the time comes for us to completely destroy the Papal Court, an unknown hand, 
pointing towards the Vatican, will give the signal for the assault. When the people in their 
rage throw themselves on to the Vatican, we shall appear as its protectors in order to stop 
bloodshed. By this act we will penetrate to the very heart of this Court and then no power 
on earth will expel us from it, until we have destroyed the Papal might. The King of 
Israel will become the true Pope of the universe, the Patriarch of the International 


But until we have accomplished the re-education of youth by means of new temporary 
religions, and subsequently by means of our own, we will not openly attack the existing 

Churches, but will fight them by means of criticism, which already has and will continue 
to spread dissensions among them. 


Generally speaking, our press will denounce governments, religious and other Gentile 
institutions by means of all kinds of unscrupulous articles, in order to discredit them to 
such an extent as our wise nation only is capable of doing. 


Our government will resemble the Hindu god Vishnu. Each of our hundred hands will 
hold one spring of the social machinery of State. 


We shall know everything, without the aid of official police, which we have so corrupted 
for the Gentiles that it only prevents the government from seeing real facts. Our 
programme will induce a third part of the populace to watch the remainder from a pure 
sense of duty and from the principle of voluntary government service. 


Then it will not be considered dishonourable to be a spy, on the contrary it will be 
regarded as praiseworthy. On the other hand, the bearers of false reports will be severely 
punished, in order to prevent abuse being made of the privilege of report. 


Our agents will be selected both from among the upper and the lower classes; they will be 
taken from among administrators, editors, printers, booksellers, clerks, workmen, 
coachmen, footmen, etc. This force of police will have no independent power of action, 
and will not have the right to take any measures of their own accord, and therefore the 
duty of this powerless police will consist solely in acting as witnesses and in issuing 
reports. The verification of their reports and actual arrests will depend on a group of 
responsible police inspectors; actual arrests will be made by "gendarmes" and city police. 
In case of failure to report any misdemeanour, concerning political matters, the person 
who should have reported the same will be punished for wilful concealment of crime, if it 
can be proved that he is guilty of such concealment. In like manner our brothers have to 
do now, namely, on their own initiative to report to the proper authority all apostates and 
all proceedings that might be contrary to our law. So in our Universal Government it will 
be the duty of all our subjects to serve their sovereign by taking the above-mentioned 


An organisation such as this will root out all abuse of power and various kinds of bribery 
and corruption — in fact it will destroy all ideas with which we have contaminated the life 
of the Gentiles, by means of our theories on superhuman rights. 


How could we achieve our aim of creating disorder in the administrative institutions of 
the Gentiles if not by some such means as this? 


Among the most important means for corrupting their institutions is the use of such 
agents as are in a position, through their own destructive activity, to contaminate others 
by revealing and developing their own corrupt tendencies, such as abuse of power and a 
free use of bribery. 



When, the time comes for us to take special-police measures by putting the present 
Russian system of "Okhrana" in force (the most dangerous poison for the prestige of the 
state) we will stir up mock disorders among the populace, or induce it to show protracted 
discontent, and this with the aid of good orators. These orators will find plenty of 
sympathisers, thus giving us an excuse for searching people's houses and placing them 
under special restrictions by making use of our servants among the police of the Gentiles. 


As most conspirators are actuated by their love for such art and for that of chattering, we 
will not touch them until we see that they are about to take action, and we will confine 
ourselves to introducing among them a, so to speak, reporting element. We must 
remember that a power loses prestige every time that it discovers a public conspiracy 
against itself. In such a revelation lies the presumption of weakness and, what is still 
more dangerous, the admission of its own mistakes. It must be known that we have 
destroyed the prestige of reigning Gentiles by means of a number of private 
assassinations, accomplished by our agents, the blind sheep of our flock, who can easily 
be induced to commit a crime, so long as such a crime is of a political character. 


We will force rulers to admit their own weakness by openly introducing special police 
measures, "Okhrana," and thus we shall shake the prestige of their own power. 


Our sovereign will be protected by means of most secret guards, as we will never allow 
anyone to think that there might exist such a conspiracy against our ruler that he could 
not personally destroy and from which he is obliged to hide himself. If we were to allow 
the existence of such an idea to prevail, as it prevails among the Gentiles, we should 
thereby sign the death warrant of our sovereign or, if not of himself, then of his dynasty. 


By a strict observance of appearances our ruler will use his power only for the benefit of 
the nation, but never for his own good or for that of the dynasty. 


By strictly adhering to such a decorum, his power be honoured and protected by his 
subjects themselves. They will worship the power of the sovereign, knowing that to this 
power is tied the welfare of the state, because from it will depend public order. 


To guard the King openly is equivalent to an admission of the weakness of his power. 


,Our ruler will always be amidst his people and will appear to be surrounded by an 
inquisitive crowd of men and women, apparently always by chance occupying the rows 
nearest to him and thus holding back the mob with a view to keeping order merely for 
order's sake. This example will teach others to exercise self-control. In case of a 
petitioner amongst the people trying to submit a demand and pushing through the mob. 

the people in the first rows will take his petition and will remit it to the ruler in the 
presence of the petitioner, in order that everyone should know that all petitions reach the 
sovereign and that he himself controls all affairs. In order to exist, the prestige of power 
must occupy such a position, that the people can say among themselves: "If only the King 
knew about it" or "When the King knows about it." 


The mysticism, which surrounds the person of the sovereign, vanishes as soon as a guard 
of police is seen to be placed round him. When such a guard is employed, any assassin 
has only to exercise a certain amount of audacity, in order to imagine himself stronger 
than the guard; he thus realises his strength and so only has to watch for the moment, 
when he can make an assault on the said power. 


We do not preach this doctrine to the Gentiles, and you can see for yourselves the results, 
which the employment of open guards has had for them. 


Our government will arrest such people as they may more or less rightfully suspect of 
political crimes. It is not desirable for fear of misjudging a man to give an opportunity of 
escape to such suspects. 


We will, indeed, show no mercy to such criminals. In certain exceptional cases it may be 
possible to consider attenuating circumstances, when dealing with ordinary criminal 
offences; but there can be no excuse for a political crime, that is to say, no excuse for 
men to become involved in politics, which none, except the ruler, should understand. 
And, indeed, not all rulers are capable of understanding true politics. 



We will prohibit individuals from becoming involved in politics, but, on the other hand, 
we will encourage every kind of report or petition submitting suggestions for the 
approval of the government which deal with the improvement of social and national life. 
Thus, by these means, the mistakes of our Government and the ideals of our subjects will 
become known to us. We will answer these suggestions by accepting them or, if they are 
unsatisfactory, by producing a sound argument to prove that they are impossible of 
realisation and based on a short-sighted conception of affairs. 


Sedition is no more than the barking of a dog at an elephant. In a government that is well 
organised from a social point of view, but not from a point of view of its police, the dog 
barks at the elephant without realising his strength. The elephant has only to show its 
strength by one good example for the dogs to stop barking and to start wagging their tails 
as soon as they see the elephant. 


In order to deprive the political criminal of his crown of valour, we will place him in the 
ranks of other criminals on an equal footing with thieves, murderers, and other kinds of 
repulsive malefactors. Then public opinion will mentally regard political crimes in the 
same light as ordinary crimes and will place the same common stigma on both. 


We have done our best to prevent the Gentiles from adopting this particular method of 
dealing with political crimes. In order to attain this end, we have made use of the press, 
public speaking, and cleverly thought-out history school-books, and inspired the idea of a 
political murderer being a martyr, because he died for the idea of human welfare. Such an 
advertisement has multiplied the number of liberals and has swollen the ranks of our 
agents by thousands of Gentiles. 



Today I will deal with our financial programme, which I have left for the end of my 
report, as being the most difficult question and forming the final clause in our plans. 
Before discussing this point, I will remind you of that which I have touched upon before, 
namely, that our whole policy is dependent on a question of figures. 


When we get into power our autocratic government will, for the sake of self-interest, 
avoid imposing heavy taxation on the populace, and will always bear in mind that part 
which it has to play, namely, the part of father protector. 


But, as the organisation of the Government will absorb vast sums of money, it is all the 
more necessary to raise the required means for maintaining it. Therefore we must 
exercise great care in working out this question and see that the burden of taxation is 
fairly distributed. 


Through a legalised fiction, our sovereign will be the owner of all property in the state 
(this is easily put into practice). He will be able to raise such sums of money as may be 
necessary to regulate the circulation of currency in the country. 


Hence the best means to meet government expenses will be by a progressive taxation of 
property. Thus, taxation will be paid without oppressing or ruining the people and the 
amount at which it will be assessed will depend on the value of each individual property. 


It must be understood by the rich that it is their duty to hand over part of their surplus 
wealth to the government, because the government guarantees them safe possession of 
the remainder of their property and gives them the right to earn money by honest means. I 
say honest, because the control of property will preclude robbery on legal grounds. 


This social reform must be in the forefront of our programme, as it is the principal 
guarantee of peace and will brook no delay. 


Taxation of the poor is the origin of all revolution and always greatly conducive to injury 
to the Government, as the latter, while trying to raise money from the poor, loses its 
chance of obtaining it from the rich. 


Taxation of capital will diminish the increase of wealth in private hands, into which we 
have up till now purposely allowed it to accumulate, in order to act as a counterpoise to 
the Government of the Gentiles and their finances. 


Progressive taxation assessed according to the fortune of the individual will produce a 
much larger revenue than the present system of taxing everybody at an equal rate. This 
system is at the present time (1901) most essential for us, it creates discontent among the 
Gentiles. (Note that this lecture was delivered in 1901.) 


Our sovereign's power will rest mainly on the that he will be a guarantee for the balance 
of power for the perpetual peace of the world and, in order obtain such a peace, capitals 
will have to surrender ~ - of their wealth so as to safeguard the government in action. 


Government expenditure must be paid for by those who can best afford to do so and from 
whom money can be raised. 


Such a measure will stop hatred on the part of the poorer classes for the rich, in whom 
they will recognise the necessary financial supporters of the government and will see the 
upholders of peace and public welfare; the poorer classes will understand that the rich 
provide the means for supplying them with social benefits. 


In order that the intelligent classes, that is to say the taxpayers, should not complain 
excessively about the new system of taxation, we will furnish them with detailed 
accounts, in which will be set forth the manner in which their money is being spent, 
excepting of course such portion of it as is spent on the private needs of the sovereign and 
on the requirements of administration. 


The sovereign will have no personal property, as everything in the state will belong to 
him, for if sovereign were allowed to own private property it would appear as though all 
property in the state did not to him. 


The relations of the sovereign — except his heir, who will also be kept at government 
expense — will have to serve as government officials or else work in order to retain the 
right of holding property, the privilege of being of royal blood would not entitle them to 
live at the expense of the state. 


There will be a progressive stamp duty on all sales and purchases as well as death duties. 
Any transaction without the required stamp will be considered illegal, and the former 
owner will be obliged to pay to the government a percentage on the duty from the date of 
the sale. 


All transfer vouchers must be delivered weekly to the local surveyors of taxes, together 
with a statement of the name and surname of both the new and previous owner, as well as 
the permanent addresses of both. 


Such a procedure will be necessary for transactions in excess of a certain amount, that is 
to say, in excess of the amount equal to the average daily expenditure. The sale of prime 
necessities will only have to be stamped with an ordinary fixed duty stamp. 


Just count by how many times the amount of such taxation will surpass the income of the 
governments of the Gentiles. 


The state will have to keep in reserve a certain amount of capital and, in case the income 
from taxation were to exceed this specified sum, such superfluous income will have to be 
put back into circulation. These surplus sums will be expended on the organisation of 
various kinds of public works. 


The directorate of such works will be under a government department, and thus the 
interests of the working classes will be closely connected with those of the government 
and with their sovereign. A portion of this surplus money will also be allotted to 
premiums inventions and productions. 


It is most essential not to allow currency to lie inactive in the state bank, beyond such a 
specified sum as may be intended for some special purpose. For currency exists for 
circulahon and any congestion of money always has a fatal effect on the course of state 
affairs, since money acts as a lubricant in the state mechanism and, if the lubricant 
becomes clogged, the working of the machine is thereby stopped. 


The fact that bonds have been substituted for a large part of the currency has now created 
a congestion such as just described. The consequences of this fact are becoming 
sufficiently obvious. 


We will also institute an auditing department, so as to enable the sovereign at any time to 
receive a full account of the expenditure of the government and its revenue. All reports 
will be kept strictly up to date, except those of the current and preceding months. 


The only person who could not be interested in robbing the state bank will be its owner, 
namely, the Sovereign. For this reason his control will stop all possibility of leakage or 
unnecessary expenditure. Receptions for sake of etiquette, which waste the valuable time 
of the Sovereign, will be abolished in order that he may have more opportunity to attend 
to affairs of state. Under our government the Sovereign will not be surrounded by 
courtiers, who usually dance attendance on the monarch for the sake of pomp and are 
only interested in their own affairs, putting aside as they do the welfare of the state. 


All economic crises, which we have so skillfully arranged in the Gentile countries, we 
carried out by means of withdrawing currency from circulation. Large fortunes are 
congested, money being withdrawn from the government, which in its turn is obliged to 
appeal to the owners of such fortunes, in order to raise loans. These loans have put heavy 
burdens on the governments, compelling them to pay interest on the borrowed money, 
and thus tying their hands. 


Concentration of production into the hands of capitalism has sucked all the productive 
power of the people dry, and with it also the wealth of the state. 


Currency at the present time cannot satisfy the requirements of the working classes, as 
there is not enough to go all around. 


The issue of currency must correspond to the growth of the population, and children have 
to be reckoned as consumers of currency from the first day of their birth. Occasional 
revision of currency is a vital question for the whole world. 


I think that you know that gold currency has been the destruction of all states which have 
adopted it, because it could not satisfy the requirements of the population, all the more so 
because we have done our best to cause it to be congested and to be withdrawn from 


Our government will have a currency based on the value of the working power of the 
country, and it will be of paper or even of wood. 


We will issue currency sufficient for each subject, adding to this amount on the birth of 
every child, and diminishing it with the death of each person. 


Government accounts will be kept by separate local governments and by county offices. 


In order that delays should not occur in paying government expenses, the Sovereign 
himself will issue orders as to the term of payment of such sums, thus the favouritism 
which is sometimes shown by ministries finance to certain departments will be 


The revenue and expenditure accounts will be kept together, in order that they may 
always be compared with one another. 


The plans which we will make for the reform of the financial institutions of the Gentiles 
will be introduced in such a manner as will never be noticed by them. We will point out 
the necessity of reforms, as being due to the disorderly state which Gentile finances have 
reached. We will show that the first reason for this bad state of finance lies in the fact that 
they start their financial year by making a rough estimate for the budget, the amount of 
which increases from year to year, and for the following reason: the annual budget is with 
great difficulty made to last till the end of the half year; then a revised budget is 
introduced, the money of which is generally expended in three months; after that a 
supplementary budget is voted; at the end of the year accounts are settled by a liquidation 
budget. The budget for the year is based on the total expenditure of the preceding year; 
therefore each year there is a deviation of about 50 percent from the nominal sum and the 
annual budget at the end of 10 years is increased threefold. Thanks to such a procedure, 
which was tolerated by the careless Gentile governments, their reserves have been 
drained. Then, when the period of loans arose, it emptied their banks and brought them to 
the verge of bankruptcy. 


You will readily understand, that such a management of financial affairs, which we 
induced the Gentiles to pursue, cannot be adopted by our Government. 


Each loan proves the weakness of the government and its failure to understand its own 
rights. Each loan, like the sword of Damocles, hangs over the heads of the rulers who, 

instead of raising certain sums direct from the nation by means of temporary taxation, 
come to our bankers cap in hand. 


External loans are like leeches, which cannot be separated from the body of the 
government until they fall off of themselves or until the government manages to shake 
them off. But the governments of the Gentiles have no desire to shake off these leeches; 
on the contrary, they increase their number, and therefore their state is bound to die from 
self-inflicted loss of blood. For what is an external loan if not a leech? A loan is an issue 
of government paper which entails an obligation to pay interest amounting to a 
percentage of the total sum of the borrowed money. If a loan is at 5 percent, then in 20 
years the government will have unnecessarily paid out a sum equal to that of the loan, in 
order to cover the percentage. In 40 years it will have paid twice, and in 60 thrice that 
amount, but the loan will still remain as an unpaid debt. 


From this calculation it is evident that such loans, under the existing system of taxation 
(1901), draw the last cents from the poor taxpayer in order to pay interests to foreign 
capitalists, from whom the state has borrowed the money, instead of collecting the 
necessary sum from the nation free of all interest in the shape of taxation. 


As long as loans were internal, the Gentiles only transferred money from the pockets of 
the poor into those of the rich; but after we bribed the necessary people to substitute 
external loans for internal, all the wealth of the states rushed into our safes and all the 
Gentiles started paying us what amounted to nothing short of tribute. 


Through their carelessness in statesmanship, or owing to the corruption of their ministers, 
of their ignorance of finance. Gentile Sovereigns have put their countries in debt to our 
banks, so that they can never payoff these mortgages. You must understand to what pains 
we must have gone in order to bring about such a state of affairs. 


In our government we will take great care that congestion of money shall not occur, and 
therefore we will not have state loans, except one of 1 percent exchequer bonds, in order 
that payment of percentage should not expose the country to be sucked by leeches. 


The right of issuing bonds will be given exclusively to commercial companies. These will 
have no difficulty in paying the percentage out of their profits because they borrow 
money for commercial enterprises, but the government cannot make profits from 
borrowed money, because it borrows solely in order to spend what it has taken on loan. 


Commercial shares will also be bought by the government, which will thus become a 
creditor instead of being a debtor and payer of tribute as it is at present. Such a measure 
will put an end to indolence and laziness, which were useful to us as long as the Gentiles 
were independent, but would be undesirable in our government. 


The emptiness of the purely bestial brains of the Gentiles is sufficiently proved by the 
fact that, when they borrowed money from us at interest, they failed to understand that 
each sum so borrowed, together with the interest on the amount, would eventually have to 
come out of the resources of the country. It would have been simpler to have taken the 
money from their own people at once without having to pay interest. This proves our 

genius, and the fact that our people has been elected by God. We have so managed as to 
present the question of loans in such a light to the Gentiles that they even thought that 
they found a profit them. 


Our estimates, which we will produce when the time comes, and which will have been 
worked out with the experience of centuries and which we haye been considering while 
the Gentiles have been governing, will differ from those made by the Gentiles in their 
extraordinary clearness, and will prove to the world how beneficial are our new plans. 
These plans will terminate such abuses as those by which we became masters of the 
Gentiles, and as cannot be allowed in our reign. We will so arrange the system of our 
budget that neither the ruler himself nor the most insignificant clerk will be in a position 
unobserved to extract the smallest portion of the money or use it for any other purpose 
than that to which it has been allotted in the first estimate. 


Without a definitely fixed plan it is impossible to rule successfully. Even knights and 
heroes perish when they take a road not knowing where it leads, and start on their journey 
without being properly provisioned. 


The Sovereigns of the Gentiles, whom we helped to induce to forsake their duties in the 
government by means of representations and entertainments, pomp, and other diversions, 
were no more than screens to hide our intrigues. 


The reports of their followers, who used to be sent to represent the Sovereign in his 
public duties, were made for them by our agents. On each occasion these reports used to 

please the short-sighted minds of the sovereigns, accompanied, as they were, by various 
schemes for future econqmy. "How could they economise by fresh taxation?" they could 
have asked, but they did not ask, the readers of our reports. 


You yourselves know to what a state of financial chaos they have come by their own 
negligence, they have ended in bankruptcy in spite of all the hard work of their subjects. 



I will now add to what I told you at our last meeting and give you a detailed explanation 
of internal loans. But I will not discuss external loans any further, because they have 
filled our coffers with Gentile money, and also because our universal government will 
have no foreign neighbours from whom they could borrow money. 


We made use of the corruption of administrators and of the negligence of Gentile 
Sovereigns in order to obtain twice and three times the amount of the money advanced by 
us to their governments, which in reality they did not need at all. Who could do the same 
with regard to us? Therefore I will only go into the question of internal loans. 


When it announces the issue of such a loan, the government opens a subscription for its 
bonds. In order that these bonds might come within the reach of everybody they are 
issued down to very small amounts. The first subscribers are allowed to buy below par. 
On the following day their price is inflated in order to convey the idea that everybody is 
anxious to buy them. 


In the course of a few days of the exchequer the safes of exchequer the are full with all 
the money which has been oversubscribed. (Why continue accepting money for an 
oversubscribed loan?) The subscription is evidently considerably in excess of the amount 
asked for, in this lies the whole effect — the public evidently trust the government! 


But when the comedy is over there arises the fact of a very large debt. And, in order to 
pay the interest on this debt, the government has to have recourse to a fresh loan, which, 
in its turn, does not annul the state debt, but only adds to it. When the borrowing capacity 
of the government is exhausted, the interest on the loans must be paid by new taxations. 
These taxations are nothing but debts contracted in order to cover other debts. 


Then comes a period of conversions of loans, but sueh conversions only diminish the 
amount of interest to be paid, and do not annul the debt. Moreover they can on}y be made 
with the consent of the creditors. When such conversions are announced the creditors are 
given the right to accept them or to have their money back, in case they do not wish to 
accept the conversions. If everybody were to reclaim his own money, the government 
would be caught by its own bait, and would not be in a condition to return all the money. 
Luckily the subjects of the Gentile governments do not understand much of finance and 
they have always preferred suffering a fall in the value of their securities and a reduction 
of interest to the risk of a new investment; thus they have often given their government an 
opportunity to get rid of a debt, which probably amounted to several millions. 


The Gentiles would not dare to do such a thing with external loans, knowing very well 
that, in such a case, we would demand all our money. 


By such action the government would openly admit its own bankruptcy, which would 
plainly show the people that their own interests have nothing in common with those of 
their government. I specially draw your attention to this fact as also to the following: at 
present all internal loans are consolidated by so-called temporary loans, that is to say, 
debts, the period for the payment of which is short. These debts consist of the money 
placed on deposit in state banks or saving banks. This money, being at the disposal of the 
government for a considerable length of time, is used for paying interest on external loans 
and, in lieu of the money, the government places an equal amount in its own securities 
into these banks. These state securities cover all deficits in the state safes of the Gentiles. 


When our sovereign is enthroned over the whole world, all these tricky financial 
operations will vanish. We will destroy the market in public funds, because we will not 
allow our prestige to be shaken by the rise and fall of our stocks, the value of which will 
be established by law at par without any possibility of fluctuation in price. Rise gives 
cause to fall, and it is by rises that we started to discredit the public funds of the Gentiles. 


For Stock Exchanges will be substituted enormous government organisations, the duty of 
which will consist in taxing commercial enterprises as the government may think fit. 
These institutions will be in a position to throw on to the market millions' worth of 
commercial shares, or to buy up the same, in one day. Thus all commercial enterprises 
will be dependent on us. 


You can imagine what a power we will thus become. 



In all which I have told you up till now I have tried to give you a true picture of the 
mystery of the present events, as also of those of the past, which all flow into the river of 
Fate, and the result of which will be seen in the near future. I have shown you our secret 
plans by which we deal with the Gentiles as well as our financial policy. I have only to 
add a few more words. 


In our hands is concentrated the greatest might of the present days, that is to say, gold. In 
the course of two days we can draw any amount of it from our secret treasure rooms. 


Is it still necessary for us to prove that our rule is the will of God? Is it possible that, with 
such vast riches, we shall not be able to prove that all the gold, which we have been 

accumulating for so many centuries, will not help in our true cause for good, — that is to 
say, for the restoration of order under our rule? 


It may require a certain amount of violence, but this order will eventually be established. 
We will prove that we are the benefactors who have restored lost peace and freedom to 
the tortured world. We will give the world the opportunity of this peace and freedom, but 
certainly only under one condition — that is to say, that it should strictly adhere to our 
laws. Moreover we will make it clear to everyone that freedom does not consist in 
dissoluteness or in the right of doing whatever people please. Likewise that the position 
and power of a man does not give him the right to proclaim destructive principles such as 
freedom of religion, equality, or similar ideas. We will also make it clear that individual 
freedom does not convey the right to any man to become excited or to excite others by 
making ridiculous speeches to disorderly masses. We will teach the world, that true 
freedom consists only in inviolability of a man's person and of his property, who honestly 
adheres to all the laws of social life. That a man's position will be dependent on the 
conception which he has of another man's rights and that his dignity prohibits fantastic 
ideas on the subject of self. 


Our power will be glorious, because it will be mighty and will rule and guide, but by no 
means follow leaders of the populace or any kind of orators who shout senseless words 
which they call high principles, and which are in reality nothing else but Utopian ideas. 
Our power will be the organiser of order in which lies peoples' happiness. The prestige of 
this power will bring to it mystic adoration, as well as subjection of all nations. A true 
power does not yield to any right even to that of God. None will dare to approach it with 
the object of depriving it of a thread of its might. 



In order that people should become accustomed to obedience they must be trained to 
modesty, therefore we will reduce the production of objects of luxury. By these means we 
will also impose morals, which are being corrupted by continual rivalry on the grounds of 
luxury. We will patronise "peasant industries" in order to injure private factories. 


The necessities for such reforms also lies in the fact that large private factory-owners 
often instigate their workmen against the government, perhaps, even unconsciously. 


The populace engaged in local industries does not know the meaning of being "out of 
work," and this makes it cling to the existing order, and induces it to support the 
government. Unemployment is the greatest for the government. For us it will have done 
its work as soon as, by its means, we shall have obtained power. 


Drunkenness will also be prohibited as a crime against humanity, and will be punishable 
as such; for man becomes equal to a beast under the influence of alcohol. 


Nations only submit blindly to a strong power, which is absolutely independent of them 
and in whose hand they can see a sword, acting as a weapon of defence against all social 
insurrections. Why should they want their Sovereign to possess the soul of an angel? 
They must see in him the personification of strength and might. 


A ruler must arise who will supersede the existing governments, which have been living 
upon a crowd, whose demoralisation we ourselves have brought about among flames of 
anarchy. Such a ruler must commence by extinguishing these flames, which are 
incessantly springing up from all sides. 


In order to obtain such a result, he must destroy all societies which may be the origin of 
these flames, even if he has to shed his own blood. He must form a well-organised army, 
which will anxiously fight the infection of any anarchy, which may poison the body of 
the government. 


Our Sovereign will be chosen by God and appointed from above in order to destroy all 
ideas influenced by instinct and not by reason, by brutal principles and not by humanity. 
At present these ideas successfully prevail in their robberies and violence under the 
banner of right and freedom. 


Such ideas have destroyed all social organisations, thus leading to the reign of the King 
of Israel. 


But their part will be played as soon as the reign of our Sovereign commences. Then we 
must sweep them away, so that no dirt should lie in our Sovereign's path. 


Then we shall be able to say to the nations: "Pray to God and bow down before him who 
bears the mark of the predestination of the world and whose star God himself guided, in 
order that none other but Himself should be able to set humanity free from all sin." 



Now I will deal with the manner in which we will strengthen the dynasty of King David, 
in order that it may endure until the last day. 


Our manner of securing the dynasty will consist chiefly of the same principles which 
have given to our wise men the management of the world's affairs, that is to say, the 
direction and education of the whole human race. 


Several members of the seed of David will prepare Kings and their successors, who will 
be elected not by right of inheritance but by their own capabilities. These successors will 
be initiated in our secret political mysteries and plans of governing, taking great care that 
no one else should acquire them. 


Such measures will be necessary in order that all should know that only those can rule 
who have been initiated in the mysteries of political art. Only such men will be taught 
how to apply our plans in practice by making use of the experience of many centuries. 
They will be initiated in the conclusions drawn from all our political and economical 
system and in all social sciences. In a word, they will be told the true spirit of the laws 
that have been founded by nature herself in order to govern mankind. 


Direct successors to the sovereign will be superceded in the event of their proving to be 
frivolous or soft-hearted during their education, or in case they show any other tendency 
likely to be detrimental to their power, and which may render them incapable of ruling 
and even to be dangerous to the prestige of the crown. 


Only such men as are capable of governing firmly, although perhaps cruelly, will be 
entrusted with the reins of government by our Elders. 


In case of illness or loss of energy, our Sovereign will be obliged to hand over the reigns 
of government to those of his family who have proved themselves more capable. 


The King's immediate plans and, still more, his plans for the future will not even be 
known to those who will be called his nearest councillors. Only our Sovereign, and the 
Three who initiated him, will know the future. 


In the person of the Sovereign, who will rule with an unshakable will and control himself 
as well as humanity, the people will recognise as it were fate itself and all its human 
paths. None will know the aims of the Sovereign when he issues his orders, therefore 
none will dare to obstruct his mysterious path. 


Of course, the Sovereign must have a head capable of dealing with our plans. Therefore 
he will not ascend the throne before his brain-power has been ascertained by our wise 


In order that all his subjects should love and venerate their Sovereign, he must often 
address them in public. Such measures will bring the two powers into harmony, namely, 
that of the populace and that of the ruler, which we have separated in the Gentile 
countries by holding the one in awe of the other. 


We had to hold these two powers in awe one of another in order that they, when once 
separated, should fall under our influence. 


The King of Israel must not be under the influence of his own passions, especially that of 
sensuousness. He must not allow animal instincts to get the better of his brain. 
Sensuousness, more than any other passion, is certain to destroy all mental and foreseeing 
powers; it distracts men's thoughts towards the worst side of human nature. 


The Column of the Universe in the person of the World Ruler, sprung from the Holy seed 
of David, has to forgo all personal passions for the benefit of his people. 


Our Sovereign must be irreproachable.

These minutes were stealthily removed from a large book of notes on lectures. My friend 
found them in the safes at the headquarter offices of the Society of Zion, which is at 
present stituated in France. 


France compelled Turkey to grant various to the schools and religious institutions of all 
denominations, which will be under the protectorate of the French diplomacy in Asia 
Minor. Of course, these do not include the Catholic schools and institutions which were 
expelled from France by the late governments. This fact merely proves that the 
diplomacy of the Dreyfus schools is only anxious to protect the interests of Zion, and is 
working for the colonisation of Asia Minor by French Jews. Zion always knew how to 
acquire influence for itself by means of what the Talmud calls its "working brutes," by 
which it refers to the Gentiles in general. 


According to the records of secret Jewish Zionism, Solomon and other Jewish learned 
men already, in 929 B.C., thought out a scheme in theory for a peaceful conquest of the 
whole universe by Zion. 


As history developed, this scheme was worked out in detail and completed by men, who 
were subsequently initiated in this question. These learned men decided by peaceful 
means to conquer the world for Zion with slyness of the symbolic serpent, whose head 
was to represent the initiated into the plans of the Jewish administration, and the body of 
the serpent to represent the Jewish people — the administration was always kept secret, 
even from the Jewish nation itself. As this serpent penetrated into the hearts of the nations 
which it encountered, it got under and devoured all the non-Jewish power of these states. 
It is foretod that the snake has to finish its work, strictly adhering to the designed plan, 
until the course which it has to run is closed by the return of its head to Zion and until, by 

this means, the snake has completed its round of Europe and has encircled it — and until, 
by dint of enchaining Europe, it has encompassed the whole world. This it is to 
accomplish by using every endeavour to subdue the other countries by an economical 


The return of the head of the serpent to Zion can only be accomplished after the power of 
all the Sovereigns of Europe has been laid low, that is to say, when by means of 
economic crises and wholesale destruction effected everywhere there shall have been 
brought about a spiritual demoralisation and a moral corruption, chiefly with the 
assistance of Jewish women masquerading as French, Italians, etc. These are the surest 
spreaders of licentiousness into the lives of the leading men at the heads of nations. 


Women in the service of Zion act as a decoy for those who, thanks to them, are always in 
need of money, and therefore are always ready to barter their conscience for money. This 
money is in reality only lent by the Jews, for it quickly returns through the same women 
into the hands of bribing Jewry — but, through these transactions, slaves are bought to the 
cause of Zion. 


It is natural for the success of such an undertaking that neither the public officials nor 
private individuals should suspect the part played by the women employed by Jewry. 
Therefore the directors of the cause of Zion formed, as it were, a religious caste — eager 
followers of the Mosaic law and of the statutes of the Talmud. All the world believed that 
the mask of the law of Moses is the real rule of life of the Jews. No one thought of 
investigating the effect of this rule of life, especially as all eyes were directed on the gold, 
which could be supplied by the caste and which gave this caste absolute freedom for its 
economical and political intrigues. 


A sketch of the course of the symbolic serpent is as follows: Its first stage in Europe was 
in 429 B.C. Greece, where, in the time of Pericles, the serpent started eating into the 
power of that country. The second stage was in Rome in the time of Augustus about 69 
B.C. The third in Madrid in the time of Charles V. in 1552 A.D. The fourth in Paris about 
1700, in the time of Louis XVI. The fifth in London from 1814 onwards (after the 
downfall of Napoleon). The sixth in Berlin in 1871 after the Franco-Prussian war. The 
seventh in St. Petersburg, over which is drawn the head of the serpent under the date of 


All these states which the serpent traversed have had foundations of their constitutions 
shaken, Germany with its apparent power, forming no exception to the rule. In economic 
conditions England and Germany are spared, but only till the conquest of Russia is 
accomplished by the serpent, on which at present all its efforts are concentrated. The 
further course of the serpent is not shown on this map, but arrows indicate its next 
movement towards Moscow, Kieff, and Odessa. 


It is now well known to us to what extent the latter cities form the centres of the militant 
Jewish race. Constantinople is shown as the last stage of the course. (Note that this map 
was drawn years before the Revolution in Turkey.) before it reaches Jerusalem. 


Only a short distance still remains before the serpent will be able to complete its course 
by uniting its head to its tail. 


In order to enable the serpent to pass easily over its, course, the following measures were 
taken by Zion with the purpose of recasting society and converting the labour classes. 
First of all the Jewish race was so organised that none should penetrate into it and thus 
disclose its secrets. God himself is supposed to have told the Jews that they were 
predestined to rule over the whole earth in the form of an indivisible Kingdom of Zion. 
They have been told that they are the only race which deserves to be called human, all the 
rest being intended to remain "working brutes" and slaves of the Jews, and that their 
object must be the conquest of the world and the erection of the throne of Zion over the 
universe. (See Sanh. 91. 21, 1051. [in the Talmud, web ed.]) 


The Jews were taught that they are Supermen, and that they must keep themselves apart 
from all other nations. These theories inspired the Jews with an idea of self-glorification, 
because they are by right the sons of God. (See Jihal 67, 1 ; Sanh. 58,2.) 


The secluded mode of living of the race of Zion is strictly adhered to by the system of the 
"Kaghal," which compels every Jew to help his kinsman independent of the assistance 
which he receives from their local administrations, which screen the government of Zion 
from the eyes of those of the Gentile states, which, in their turn, always eagerly defend 
the Jewish self-government, erroneously regarding them as a purely religious sect. The 
above-mentioned ideas, instilled into the Jews, have also considerably influenced their 
material life. 


When we read such works as "Gopayon," 14, page I; "Eben-Gaizar," 44, page 81; 
"XXXVI. Ebamot," 98;. "XXV. Ketubat," 36; "XXXIV. Sanudrip," 746; "XXX. 
Kadushin," 68A — which were all written in order to glorify the Jewish race, we see that 
they really treat all Gentiles as though they were beasts, created only serve them. They 
think that peoples, properties and their lives belong to the Jews and that God permits His 
chosen race to make what use they like of them. 


According to their laws all their ill-treatment of the Gentile's is forgiven them on the day 
of their New Year, at which time also indulgence is given them to sin likewise in the 
coming year. 


In order to excite the hatred of their people towards all Gentiles, the leaders of the Jews 
acted as "agents-provocateurs" in anti-Semitic risings by allowing the Gentiles to find out 
some of the secrets of the Talmud. Expressions of anti-Semitism were also very useful to 
the leading Jews, because they created compassion in bearts of some Gentiles towards the 
people who were being apparently ill-treated, thus enlisting their sympathies the side of 


The anti-Semitism, which brought about persecutions of the lower orders among the 
Jews, helped their leaders to control and hold their kinsmen in subjection. This they could 
afford to do, because they always intervened at the right time and saved their fellow 
people. Note that the leaders of the Jews never suffered from anti-Semitic rising as 
regarded their personal belongings or their official position in their administration. This is 
not to be wondered at, as these heads themselves set the "Christian bloodhounds" against 
the humbler Jews and the bloodhounds managed to keep their herds in order for them, 
and thereby helped to establish the solidity of Zion. 


The Jews, in their own opinion, have already attained the position of a super-government 
over the whole world, and are now throwing away their masks. 


Of course, the main conquering power of Zion always lay in their gold; therefore they 
only had to work in order to give a value to this gold. 


The high price of gold is chiefly accounted for by gold currency; its accumulation in the 
hands of Zion is accounted for by the Jews being able to profit and make use of any 
serious international crisis in order to monopolise gold. This is proved by the history of 
the Rothschild family, published in Paris in the "Libre Parole." 


By means of these crises the might of Capitalism was established under the banner of 
Liberalism and protected by cleverly thought-out economical and social theories. By 
giving these theories a scientific appearance the Elders of Zion obtained extraordinary 


The existence of the balloting system always affords Zion an opportunity of introducing, 
by means of bribery, such laws as may suit its purpose. The form of Gentile government 
most after the Jews' own heart is a Republic, because with such they can the more easily 
manage to buy a majority and the republican system gives their agents and army of 
anarchists unlimited freedom. For this reason the Jews are such supporters of Liberalism 
and the stupid Gentiles, who are befooled by them, ignore the already evident fact that, 
under a republic there is no more freedom than under an autocracy; on the contrary, there 
exists an oppression of the few by the mob, which is always instigated by the agents of 


According to the will of Montefiore, Zion spares no money or means in order to attain 
these ends. In our days all governments throughout the world, consciously or 
unconsciously, are subject to the orders of that great super-government which is Zion, 
because all their bonds are in the possession of the latter and all countries are indebted to 
the Jews to such an extent as never to be able to pay off their debts. All trade, commerce, 
as well as diplomacy, are in the hands of Zion. By means of its capital it enslaved all 
Gentile nations. By dint of intensified education on a material basis the Jew laid heavy 
chains on all the Gentiles, with which they have attached them to their super-government. 


The end of national freedom is at hand, and therefore also individual liberty will come to 
an end, because true liberty cannot exist where the lever of money renders it possible for 
Zion to govern the mob and to reign over the more worthy and more reasonable portion 
of the community. 

..."those that have ears to hear, let them hear." 


It will soon be four years since "the Protocols of the Elders of Zion" have been in my 
possession. God alone knows how numerous have been unsuccessful attempts which I 
have made in order to bring them to light or even to warn those who are in power and 
reveal to them the causes of the storm which hangs over apathetic Russia, who seems 
unfortunately to have lost all count of what is going on around her. 


And only now, when I fear that it is too late, have I succeeded in publishing my work, in 
the hope that I may be able to warn those who still have ears to hear and eyes to see. 


There is no room left for doubt. With all the might and terror of Satan, the reign of the 
triumphant King of Israel is approaching our unregenerate world; the King is born and 
the blood of Zion — the Anti-Christ — is near to the throne of universal power. 


Events in the world are rushing with stupendous rapidity; dissensions, wars, rumours, 
famines, epidemics, and earthquakes — what was but yesterday impossible, has today 
become and accomplished fact. Days rush past, as it were for the benefit of the chosen 
people. There is no time to minutely enter into the history of humanity from the point of 
view of the revealed "mysteries of iniquity," to historically prove the influence which the 
"elders of Israel" have had on the misfortunes of humanity, to fortell the already 
approaching certain future of mankind or to disclose the final act of the world's tragedy. 


The Light of Christ alone and that of His Holy Universal Church can penetrate into the 
Satanic depths and reveal the extent of their wickedness. 


In my heart I feel that the hour has struck for summoning the Eighth Ecumenical Council 
to which, oblivious of the quarries which have parted them for so many centuries, will 
congregate the pastors and representatives of the whole of Christianity, to meet the 
advent of the Anti-Christ.

diffusion is, however, increasing, and its reading is likely to perturb the thinking public. 
Never before have a race and a creed been accused of a more sinister conspiracy. We in 
this country, who live in good fellowship with numerous representatives of Jewry, may 
well ask that some authoritative criticism should deal with it, and either destroy the ugly 
"Semitic" bogy or assign their proper place to the insidious allegations of this kind of 

In spite of the urgency of impartial and exhaustive criticism, the pamphlet has been 
allowed, so far, to pass almost unchallenged. The Jewish Press announced, it is true, that 
the anti-Semitism of the "Jewish Peril" was going to be exposed. But save for an 
unsatisfactory article in the March 5 issue of the Jewish Guardian, and for an almost 
equally unsatisfactory contribution to the Nation of March 27, this exposure is yet to 
come. The article of the Jewish Guardian is unsatisfactory, because it deals mainly with 
the personality of the author of the book in which the pamphlet is embodied, with 
Russian reactionary propaganda, and the Russian secret police. It does not touch the 
substance of the "Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion." The purely Russian side of 
the book and its fervid "Orthodoxy" is not its most interesting feature. Its author. 
Professor S. Nilus, who was a minor official in the Department of Foreign Religions at 
Moscow, had, in all likelihood, opportunities of access to many archives and unpublished 
documents. On the other hand, the world-wide issue raised by the "Protocols" which he 
incorporated in his book and are now translated into English as "The Jewish Peril," 
cannot fail not only to interest, but to preoccupy. What are the theses of the "Protocols" 
with which, in the absence of public criticism, British readers have to grapple alone and 
unaided? They are, roughly: 

(1) There is, and has been for centuries, a secret international political organization of the 

(2) The spirit of this organization appears to be an undying traditional hatred of the 
Christian world, and a titanic ambition for world domination. 

(3) The goal relentlessly pursued through centuries is the destruction of the Christian 
national States, and the substitution for them of an international Jewish dominion. 

(4) The method adopted for first weakening and then destroying existing bodies politic is 
the infusion of disintegrating political ideas of carefully measured progressive disruptive 
force, from liberalism to radicalism, and socialism to communism, culminating in 
anarchy as a reductio ad absurdum of egalitarian principles. Meanwhile Jewry remains 
immune from these corrosive doctrines. "We preach Liberalism to the Gentiles, but on 
the other hand we keep our own nation in entire subjection" (page 55). Out of the welter 

of world anarchy, in response to the desperate clamour of distraught humanity, the stern, 
logical, wise, pitiless rule of "the King of the Seed of David " is to arise. 

(5) Political dogmas evolved by Christian Europe, democratic statesmanship and politics, 
are all equally contemptible to the Elders of Zion. To them statesmanship is an exalted 
secret art, acquired only by traditional training, and imparted to a select few in the 
secrecy of some occult sanctuary. "Political problems are not meant to be understood by 
ordinary people; they can only be comprehended, as I have said before, by rulers who 
have been directing affairs for many centuries." ( Protocol 13.2. ) 

(6) To this conception of statesmanship the masses are contemptible cattle, and the 
political leaders of the Gentiles, "upstarts from its midst as rulers, are likewise blind in 
politics." They are puppets, pulled by the hidden hand of the "Elders," puppets mostly 
corrupt, always inefficient, easily coaxed, or bullied, or blackmailed into submission, 
unconsciously furthering the advent of Jewish dominion. 

(7) The Press, the theatre, stock exchange speculations, science, law itself, are, in the 
hands that hold all the gold, so many means of procuring a deliberate confusion and 
bewilderment of public opinion, demoralization of the young, and encouragement of the 
vices of the adult, eventually substituting, in the minds of the Gentiles, for the idealistic 
aspiration of Christian culture the "cash basis" and a neutrality of materialistic 
scepticism, or cynical lust for pleasure. 

Such are the main theses of the "Protocols." They are not altogether new, and can be 
found scattered throughout anti-Semitic literature. The condensed form in which they are 
now presented lends them a new and weird force. 

Incidentally, some of the features of the would-be Jewish programme bear an uncanny 
resemblance to situations and events now developing under our eyes. Professor Nilus's 
book was, undoubtedly, published in Russia in 1905. The copy of the original at the 
British Museum bears the stamp of August 10, 1906. This being so, some of the passages 
assume the aspect of fulfilled prophecies, unless one is inclined to attribute the prescience 
of the "Elders of Zion" to the fact that they really are the hidden instigators of these 
events. When one reads (page 8) that "it is indispensable for our plans that wars should 
not produce any territorial alterations," one is most forcibly reminded of the cry, "peace 
without annexations" raised by all the radical parties of the world, and especially in 
revolutionary Russia. And again: 

We will create a universal economic crisis, by all possible underhand 
means and with the help of gold, which is all in our hands. Simultaneously 
we will throw on to the streets huge crowds of workmen throughout 
Europe. We will increase the wages, which will not help the workmen as, 
at the same time, we will raise the price of prime necessities ... it is 
essential for us at all costs to deprive the aristocracy of their lands. To 
attain this purpose, the best method is to force up rates and taxes. These 

methods will keep the landed interests at their lowest possible ebb. 
( Protocol 3.9. , Protocol 6.1. , Protocol 6.4. ) 

Nor can one fail to recognize Soviet Russia in the following: governing the world the best results are obtained by means of 
violence and intimidation. ...In politics, we must know how to confiscate 
property without any hesitation, if by so doing we can obtain subjection 
and power. Our State, following the way of peaceful conquest, has the 
right of substituting for the terrors of war, executions less apparent and 
more expedient, which, are necessary to uphold terror, producing blind 
submission. ... By new laws we will regulate the political life of our 
subjects as though they were so many parts of a machine. Such laws will 
gradually restrict all freedom and liberties allowed by the Gentiles. ... It 
is essential for us to arrange that, besides ourselves, there should be in all 
countries nothing but a huge proletariat, so many soldiers and police loyal 
to our cause; ... in order to demonstrate our enslavement of the Gentile 
Governments of Europe, we will show our power to one of them by means 
of crime and violence, that is to say, a reign of terror; . . . our programme 
will induce a third part of the populace to watch the remainder from a pure 
sense of duty or from the principle of voluntary service. 

Bearing in mind when this was published, we see, fifteen years later, a government 
established in Russia of which a high percentage of the leaders are Jews, whose modus 
operandi follows the principles quoted, and whose mainstay is a Communist Party, which 
answers to the last quotation. We see this, and it seems uncanny. The trouble is that all 
this fosters indiscriminate anti-Semitism. That the latter is rampant in Eastern Europe is a 
fact. That its propaganda in France, England, and America is growing is a fact also. Do 
we want, and can we afford to add exacerbated race-hatred to all our political, social, and 
economic troubles? If not, the question of the "Jewish Peril" should be taken up and dealt 
with. It is far too interesting, the hypothesis it presents is far too ingenious, attractive, and 
sensational not to attract the attention of our none too happy and none too contented 
public. The average man thinks that there is something very fundamentally wrong with 
the world he lives in. He will eagerly grasp at a plausible "working hypothesis." 

What are these "Protocols?" Are they authentic? If so, what malevolent assembly 
concocted these plans, and gloated over their exposition? Are they forgery? If so, whence 
comes the uncanny note of prophecy, prophecy in parts fulfilled, in parts far gone in the 
way of fulfilment? Have we been struggling these tragic years to blow up and extirpate 
the secret organization of German world dominion only to find beneath it another more 
dangerous because more secret? Have we, by straining every fibre of our national body, 
escaped a "Pax Germanica" only to fall into a "Pax Judaeica?" The "Elders of Zion," as 
represented in their "Protocols," are by no means kinder taskmasters than William 11 and 
his henchmen would have been. 

All these questions, which are likely to obtrude themselves on the reader of the "Jewish 
Peril," cannot be dismissed by a shrug of the shoulders unless one wants to strengthen the 
hand of the typical anti-Semite and call forth his favourite accusation of the "conspiracy 
of silence." An impartial investigation of these would-be documents and of their history 
is most desirable. That history is by no means clear from the English translation. They 
would appear, from internal evidence, to have been written by Jews for Jews, or to be 
cast in the form of lectures, and notes for lectures, by Jews to Jews. If so, in what 
circumstances were they produced and to cope with what inter- Jewish emergency? Or are 
we to dismiss the whole matter without inquiry and to let the influence of such a book as 
this work unchecked?
